Camp Details

A day off from school doesn’t have to mean a day off from learning, exploring, and making friends!  These one-day camps will engage campers in a full day of crafts, hands-on and inquiry-driven activities, encounters with wild animal ambassadors, and a tour of the Zoo where each camper will get a chance to feed the goats in the Alex and Ani Farmyard.
