Winter Camp 2020

You have two great opportunities for winter fun this year! Choose our 2-day camp, 4-day camp, or both! Winter camp is the perfect activity for kids cooped up during winter break. Sign up 4 year olds through 8th graders for this wild Winter Camp.

Boredom Busters and Backyard Buddies

Some animals live at the Zoo all of the time and some are wild visitors just stopping by to find the things they need to survive. During this camp, we will learn how to help keep our resident animals’ brains and bodies busy during this colder time of year when, just like us, they can’t spend as much time outside. We’ll also learn about how we can support the Zoo’s wild animal neighbors during this cold time of year and use that knowledge to help us be good neighbors to the wildlife around our own homes this winter. Be sure to brrrrring weather appropriate gear because we are going to be taking hikes through the Zoo as well as meeting animals up-close in our classroom during this interactive and hands-on 2-day camp.

Cold Weather Critters (4year olds-2nd Grade)

Brr-rr-rrr, get out the gloves, jackets and hats, winter is coming! Good thing many animals have built-in cold weather gear!  Join us for this adventure as we meet cold weather animals face-to-face through animal encounters, hike to animal habitats, and discover the local wildlife that can tough out the harsh cold, just like we can!

Winter Warriors and Fair-Weather Friends (3rd-8th Grade)

Some animals are equipped to tough out the cold and snow while others migrate or hibernate to avoid the winter weather altogether. Whether they stay or go, these animals’ bodies are adapted to survive the long chill, sleep, or journey that comes with this time of year. During this fun, hands-on program, we will investigate our own cold-weather adaptations with Zoo hikes, compare our adaptation to those of other animals with up-close encounters, and use games and other activities to have fun exploring together.
