Winter Adventures (Ages 6 - 11)

February 20 – 24

ALL 5 DAYS: Members: $270 / Non-members: $295

PER DAY: Members: $64 / Non-members: $72  (Note: Daily registration is only available for Winter Adventures)

Instead of keeping the kids inside during February school vacation, send them to Winter Adventures where your child will be engaged in a full day of crafts, hands-on and inquiry driven activities, encounters with wild animal ambassadors and even bundled-up tours of the Zoo where each camper will get a chance to feed the goats in the Alex and Ani Farmyard. Please note: Only campers that attend all 5 days will receive a t-shirt and ZooCamp Access Pass.

THEME: SUPER SENSES

Our five senses tell us what we need to know about the world around us. Animals need this information to hunt, navigate and survive in ever-changing environments. Animals might see with their ears, taste with feet, or even smell with their tongues!

Spring Adventures (Ages 6 - 11)

April 17-21

Members: $270 / Non-members: $295

Shake off winter with a week filled with crafts, hands-on and inquiry driven activities, encounters with wild animal ambassadors, and guided Zoo tours. Each Spring Adventures camper will get a ZooCamp t-shirt, the chance to feed the goats in the Alex and Ani Farmyard, and a ZooCamp Access Pass.

THEME: IT’S ALL CONNECTED

The wild life isn’t always easy, especially when it comes to finding food, growing up and staying safe. Every day animals struggle to get by, but some have found a creative tool to help them survive: each other! Some animals form close relationships with other species, some live in big family groups and some rely on specific species for food – however they do it, they don’t do it alone, it’s all connected.

Camp hours are 8:30 am - 3:30 pm Monday - Friday.

2017 THEMES:

ODD WEEKS: If I Worked in a Zoo

A lifetime of doing what you love and loving what you do can begin with a small step. This session is aimed at any young person who dreams of working with animals or in a zoo. It takes a dedicated community to run a zoo, and during this week we will take a sneak peek into the secret life of zookeepers, zoo veterinary care, exhibit building, enrichment, and research.

Please note: Due to USDA and AZA regulations, this program will not include behind-the-scenes components.

EVEN WEEKS: Magizoology

Humans have always been fascinated with the fantastical. From ancient stories of sea monsters and Minotaurs to the Hippogriffs and Acromantulas of the Wizarding World, we just cannot get enough of these magical beasts. So, where did the inspiration for these animals come from? Did any of them ever exist in real life? We will answer these questions and more as we examine the mythical creatures that live where magic and science meet.

Please note: Campers may be registered for a maximum of one session of each theme. Registrations beyond this maximum will be cancelled.

Camp hours are 8:30 am - 3:30 pm Monday - Friday.
