Barn Hill Preserve's mobile summer camp program consists of a 45-minute oral presentation on our LIVE animal ambassadors. Our program offers campers the unique experience to get up close and personal with animals they may have never seen before! Campers participate by asking questions, getting involved in demonstrations, and responding to the speaker, making our program both educational and entertaining!

Our enthusiastic public speakers tailor the presentation to the age of their audience and regulary present to children preK - 12th grade.
