horseback ride at Prairie WildlifeThe mule drawn wagon ride is a family favorite at Prairie Wildlife

At Prairie Wildlife, we understand the significance and importance of “family time”. In this hectic, fast paced world, it seems we have given in to the daily “to do lists” and have compromised those wonderful moments spent together with those closest and dearest to us.

The family experiences at Prairie Wildlife offer so much and are enjoyed by so many. Surrounded by your children, spouse, grandparents & friends, it is difficult to think of a more memorable time. We hope you will be able to join us, get away from your “everyday” fast paced routine, and with your loved ones, begin crossing out activities from your very new and exciting “to do list”.

Kids camping

From outdoor camps, to school research field trips, to Boy Scout jamborees, Prairie Wildlife’s endless fields lend themselves beautifully as the perfect venue for youth’s events and experiences.

What better place to have young children roam free, have fun, and be a part of an event surrounded by their friends? With safe, comfortable, and secure accommodations, our youth programs have been a success and will continue to create memories not soon to be forgotten.

We welcome you to explore how Prairie Wildlife could best fit your youth programs and allow us to help you in the planning and executing of your special day surrounded by our future leaders and the “truest” members of society responsible for upholding our valued sporting traditions.
