SUMMER CAMPS ( Sacramento Zoo) : RED

Run by Sacramento Zoo Ages 3-4 yrs

Zoo camp is meant to be a fun experience and should never feel like school. We also feel that providing this fun and exciting atmosphere gives us a unique opportunity to reach kids and inspire them to care about wildlife, wild spaces and to act to protect them.

All grade levels, including preschool, will participate in the following experiences during Zoo Camp:
• Silly songs and fun crafts
• Interactive lessons and games
• Partial or full zoo tours
• Interaction with zookeepers
• Animal encounters with the zoo’s Animal Ambassadors
• The making and/or watching of a special enrichment for a resident animal

Mad about Mammals:
We are mad about mammals here at the zoo! From lions to tigers to hedgehogs, oh my! Join us to learn what makes a mammal a mammal, and why they are so great!

Artistic Animals:
Young artists will go wild at this art-based camp! Let your animal instincts free with crafts and art projects all week. Campers will use zoo animals and the natural world around them for inspiration.

Storybook Safari:
Some of our favorite stories center around animals. This camp will take a safari around the zoo, reading a new story each day at camp, and learning about the story’s animal characters!

Animals A-Z:
A is for anteater, B is for bat, C is for…. Come find out which animals start with C through Z at zoo camp! Combine your love for animals with a lesson on letters during this fun week.

Wild Wardobe:
Why does a snow leopard wear a beautiful spotted coat, and why is a tiger’s fur striped? Why does a hedgehog wear spikes when a snake has smooth scales? Come find out the answers to these questions and more this week as we learn all about animal coverings.
