Zoofari Spring Camp Daily Themes
(Subject to change)
The name giraffe derives from the word Xirapha, which means “fast hiker” in Arabic, Giraffes can run pretty fast as well, actually much faster than humans. These and other fascinating facts about the tallest animal on Earth will be the focus of this super fun spring camp day. You can’t miss it!
Never Forget the Elephants
Elephants are said to have a very good memory. In fact, older individuals are able to lead the herd to food and water sources where they have been before. Children will have a terrific time finding out what makes these animals so unique and what we can do to protect them. So, remember to sign up for camp soon!
How do Animals See the World?
Do animals see their surroundings the same way that we do? Is sight equally important for all species? Join us at Zoo Camp for a phenomenal time as you explore the diverse and curious ways animals perceive the world around them, and how that may impact their ability to survive.
Shhh… The Animals are Sleeping
Animals need to recharge after activity periods just like we do, but their resting routine may vary greatly depending on the species. Some tend to sleep less than an hour a day, while others may snooze for most of the day! How does that compare to the way you relax? Campers will have a great time here at the Zoo as they explore amazing sleeping habits found in the Animal Kingdom!
Animals’ Best Friends
On this day, campers will acquire a better understanding of the animals’ needs and will be encouraged to familiarize themselves with choosing suitable pets, and how to properly care for them. This fun filled camp day will expose children to meaningful information and resources, as well as foster their appreciation for animals in their lives and in the wild.
