Bear Camp

May 18 - 19, 2024 10:00AM - 4:00PM

During Bear Camp, guests can not only meet the grizzly and black bears, but learn all about them in a weekend full of bear-themed fun, including an "unsafe" campsite the black bears to explore.

Bear Camp

Keeper Chats

Join keepers during Bear Camp weekend to learn more about camping safely with wildlife!

Meet the Bears

The stars of Bear Camp will be grizzlies Hawthorne and Huckleberry, and black bears Benton and Fern, who will be showcased each day in keeper chats, feedings and the incredibly popular camp-site demonstration for the black bears. In between, all four bears will be their usual adorable selves: splashing in their pools, climbing logs, foraging, or just soaking up the sun.

Special Guests

Our partners at Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife (WDFW), Conservation Northwest and Defenders of Wildlife will be joining us throughout the weekend! They will help dispel myths and provide more information on living and recreating with wildlife.

Additional Activities

For the younger crowds (and those young at heart) there will be crafting materials for bear ears and paws. In the meantime, download our official Bear Camp coloring page and get creative!
