Wild in the City® is our Outdoor Skills Day Camp for Youth 6-16. This program is designed to introduce young kids that have not participated in the outdoors. AES provides these Day Camps 2-3 times every year for youth, scouts troops, and any kids wanting to experience outdoor skills to get interested in the outdoors. We teach them many skills and open their minds to wildlife conservation and volunteerism in the outdoors.

Wild in the City® is a great way to get your kids to experience many outdoor skills to get them interested in the outdoors, camping, fishing and more.
The kids will go away with fun, new knowledge about the outdoors, and some great swag from the AES.
Wild in The City® is a one day program teaching youngsters about the outdoors and other skills including:


  • archery
  • wildlife identification
  • track making
  • owl pellet dissection
  • Kayaking
  • Firearm safety and shooting (Pellet and .22 riffles)
  • Horsemanship
  • wildlife calling and much more.


The Arizona Elk Society goal is to be able to offer this program as a way to introduce young boys and girls to the outdoors. We hope to be able to run this program 3-4 times a year in Phoenix and other communities around Arizona.
