The Wilds, one of the largest con­ser­va­tion cen­ters in the world, is offer­ing two week­ends of Wilds Photo Safari Camps this fall. These spe­cial overnight week­end pro­grams, sched­uled for Sept. 25–27 and Oct. 2–4, are designed for pho­tog­ra­phy enthu­si­asts and pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­phers alike.

Head out on safari in search of Asian rhi­nos, African ante­lope, soar­ing rap­tors and spec­tac­u­lar scenery with­out ever leav­ing Ohio. At a pace that allows ample time to explore the deci­sive visual moments, you’ll learn photo tech­niques from expert pho­tog­ra­phers and build your port­fo­lio of stun­ning flora, sweep­ing land­scapes, and beau­ti­ful native and non-native wildlife dur­ing this exclu­sive opportunity.

The week­end camps are facil­i­tated by Jerry Jividen and Barbara Jividen of Naturally Wild Photo Adventures.

The week­end pro­gram includes tours explor­ing parts of the Wilds’ 10,000 acres for oppor­tu­ni­ties to pho­to­graph native species like rap­tors, but­ter­flies, and other wildlife in prairie, wet­land, and for­est habi­tats, some sched­uled at day­break for the best light.

Of course, pas­ture tours with plenty of time and oppor­tu­ni­ties to pho­to­graph non-native wildlife like giraffes, oryx and other rare and endan­gered species at the Wilds are part of the week­end activ­i­ties. A spe­cial pro­gram will take place at the Mid-Sized Carnivore Conservation Center with extended time with chee­tahs, African wild dogs and dholes.

This camp is designed for those age 18 years and older. Space is lim­ited and reser­va­tions and pre-payment are required. Registration fee is $299 per per­son and includes meals, tours, instruc­tional pro­gram­ming and overnight accom­mo­da­tions at the Wilds’ con­ser­va­tion edu­ca­tion camp.

Registration dead­line is two weeks prior to the first day of camp. Call (740) 638‑5030, ext. 2286 to reg­is­ter. For com­plete infor­ma­tion, includ­ing reg­is­tra­tion forms and itin­er­aries, please visit
