ZooCamp: Digital Adventures

A day off from school does not have to mean a day off from learning, exploring, and making friends! ZooCamp: Digital Adventures is a hybrid camp experience. Before their scheduled camp, campers will receive a ZooCamp Adventure Package with all of the necessary tools and materials for camp! We will play games, create crafts, sing, dance, visit animals and more! All of this led by our dedicated counselor team. Join us for a day of ZooCamp fun, learning and experience unlike any of the “virtual” learning you are used to. Read ahead to find out the theme of each day!

Whether it’s the bright red feathers of a cardinal, the brilliant orange wings of a butterfly or the stripes of a zebra, animals display color in vastly different ways and for different reasons.  Journey with us to investigate the nature of colors and patterns – for camouflage, to startle predators, mimic other animals, attract a mate or intimidate a rival.

Can I stay with my camper?

You are more than welcome to stay with your camper. The program is designed so the camper will not need parental support or guidance to complete activities or craft. However, it does not replace adult supervision. We ask that an adult stay in the same physical location (ex: same house) that way if the camper is having issues they know where an adult is.

Can my child and their friend/sibling/relative be in the same group?

In order to ensure that all campers receive age-appropriate opportunities, campers are grouped by age. Special requests to pair relatives or friends in the same group may be made at time of registration, but we follow strict guidelines on age ranges and grade levels.

Please note on all registrations if your campers will be sharing a device.

Can I get a refund if I change my mind?

Cancellations with be given up to 2 weeks prior to the scheduled start date. For example, cancellations for Camp on February 15th the date to cancel is February 1st.

Will My iPhone work to participate?

We recommend using a large tablet, laptop, or PC for the best Virtual ZooCamp experience. Anything smaller (e.g., a cellphone) may make it difficult to see, hear, and interact with your ZooCamp Counselors and other campers.

Can my camper participate without audio and video capabilities?

If you choose to participate without audio or video capabilities, your camp experience will be impacted. If your counselor is unable to see you or hear your camper, it will be hard to connect with your camper and ensure a successful ZooCamp experience. Contact us with special concerns or questions.
