Daily Themes
(Subject to change)

What’s Living in the Forest?
Animals are adapted to the conditions found in their particular habitats, so, you will most likely come across dexterous climbers living where there are trees, and skilled swimmers occupying water habitats. Exploring a variety of natural places filled with life is a lot of fun at Zoo Camp!

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
The way animals are, from head to toe, may be very useful in their survival. For example, if you were an egg-eating snake you’d be able to swallow whole an egg bigger than your head! Children will have lots of fun taking a look at very special head, shoulders, knees and toes found in the Animal Kingdom.

Animal X-Ray
This camp day will highlight what supports vertebrate bodies: bones. Of all sizes and shapes, they serve vertebrates well. Through exciting activities using replicas and preserved bones, everyone will be introduced to animal anatomy and will have a better understanding of how animals are built inside.

What do hummingbirds and vultures have in common? Discover the amazing variety of behaviors, colors and shapes displayed in the birds’ world. Finding out how to help protecting bird species from extinction is part of this fun and feathery camp day.

Animal Giants
Let’s explore facts and behaviors of some large and remarkable animals that inhabit our planet. They are enormous reptiles and birds, colossal mammals and impressive insects! You will have a great time identifying some of their unique survival adaptations and learning about the challenges they encounter every day.

The Tropical Flowering Tree Society will be hosting its annual plant show and sale. There will also be fun “green” activities and entertainment for the entire family as well as animal enrichment with recycled items and/or natural materials like newspapers, cardboard tubes, bamboo, old tires, fire hoses, and more.

During Party for the Planet, guests can come in free of charge if they turn in a cellphone as part of our ECO-CELL phone recycling program. Not only will each person donating a cellphone enter the zoo for free on these two days, but they will also help save gorillas! Cell phones include coltan, a mineral extracted in the deep forests of Congo in central Africa, home to the world’s endangered lowland gorillas. Fueled by the worldwide cell phone boom, Congo’s out-of-control coltan mining business has in recent years led to a dramatic reduction of animal habitat and the rampant slaughter of great apes for the illegal bush-meat trade. By turning in your cell phone, we can hopefully reduce the need for additional coltan … and help protect the gorillas.
