My Own Zoo Camp

We're going to spend the week building our own mini Zoo for our stuffed animals! To help us out we will have to get a good look at the animals at the Zoo, where they live, and how we take care of them. We will even be able to go behind the scenes and meet some animals up close. Each day our camp room will transform and grow as we add more to our own Zoo. With only 12 spots available in this camp, your child will have more one-on-one time with the leaders. It also means this camp is sure to fill up fast! Early drop-off starts at 8:45 a.m. and late pickup is available until 12 p.m.

Course prices may vary due to varying course lengths, number of sessions, option to purchase materials, etc.
