Animals Up Close

A camp for young animal lovers!


  • Single-day Session:
    • Monday, July 10
    • Tuesday, July 25

Lots of people have animals these days but think what it would have been like to live on a farm in Wisconsin 150 years ago! Walk around Old World Wisconsin's farms and learn why farmers kept so many different kinds of animals on the farm. Get to know and "talk" with our sheep, pigs, chickens, cows, horses or OXEN!

Animals need to be fed and cared for and you can help our farmers with all the chores that they do to make sure the animals have everything they need to keep them happy and healthy and ready to help out the farmers and their families.

  • Sessions run from 8:30 am to 3 pm
  • Pick-up and drop-off in the Norwegian area parking lot
  • Cost: $50 per single-day session
  • Grades: Entering grades 2–4
