SUMMER CAMPS ( Sacramento Zoo) : YELLOW

Run by Sacramento Zoo Ages 5-7 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

Snakes Alive!:
Make our Reptile House your home this week as you discover the fascinating world of amphibians and reptiles.

Sense-ational Safari:
As humans, we have five senses with which to experience the world. This week we will explore the zoo with our hearing, sight, smell and touch. Learn how animals use these same senses and more to explore their world.

Flippers, Fins, and Feathers:
Why do ducks have webbed feet and fish have fins? Join us in learning all about animals who live in or around the water, or who just go to visit. We will focus on the adaptations that these animals have to help them survive in their wet and watery habitats!

With colorful coats, super strength, disguises and binocular vision, animals have some amazing powers. Learn all about the superheroes of the animal world!

Colorful Critters:
From pink flamingos to blue and gold macaws, the zoo is filled with colorful critters. This week of camp will be art-focused, with campers drawing inspiration from the natural colors around us.

Paws, Claws, and Jaws:
Take a special look at the strong and sharp tools animals carry on their bodies every day. Tigers don’t have forks and knives for eating and hawks don’t have cell phones for communication. Learn about the fierce adaptations these animals use every day to stay alive.

Catch Me if You Can:
Some animals are fast and some are sneaky. This week of camp will focus on animals that are good at evading their predators, whether it’s with speed or with trickery
