Wonders of Wildlife
Daily Themes (Subject to change)
You will have a great time at Zoo Camp finding out how some animals utilize a variety of natureâ€™s construction materials to build amazing homes for them and their young. You will also have a lot of fun with your friends making a cozy animal house from recycled materials!
Did You Know?
When it rains chimpanzees use broad leaves as umbrellas. Crocodiles on the other hand, can cry real tears! There is even an animal that can see if itâ€™s day or night by using its tail! Can you tell what animal is that? Fun animal facts such as these and many others are the theme of this exciting day at Zoo Camp.
Join us to explore an incredible array of opposites in the animal world. You will find the fastest and the slowest, heaviest and the lightest, the largest and the smallest animals at the zoo, if you look for them really well during this opposite scavenger hunt day.
Where Does the Cookie Go?
We all know that cookies are yummy, but where do they go after we eat them? Do bears or chimpanzees like the same foods that you do? What happens to their treats after they eat them? Finding out about these and other curious food facts will be the perfect ingredients for a super fun day at Zoo Camp!
A Reason for Helping Animals
You will agree that animals and natural areas must be protected from extinction, but can you think of some reasons for doing so? Should we also help animals that may sting and scratch as well as harmless ones? You will have the best time at the Zoo with your friends, discovering the purpose for creatures and habitats. Join us!
