SUMMER CAMPS ( Sacramento Zoo) : GREEN

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.

Colors of the Wild:
This art-based camp will focus on the colors all around us in the natural world. We often say that leaves are green, but what about the yellow veins and brown tips? A red-tailed hawk isn’t just red, it is also brown, white, tan and more. There are so many colors around to inspire us here in the zoo.

The Dark Side:
Do you choose the dark side or the light side…of when to be awake that is! Do you like to be awake and active at night or during the day? Come find out which category you fall into and which side the animals prefer.

There are many myths in the animal world. People say owls can turn their heads all the way around and that bats are blind. Do you think these are true? Join us to investigate these myths and more!

Bats, snakes, anteaters and sloths: they may not be the cutest creatures, but these animals have unique characteristics that make them some of our favorites here at the zoo. Join us this week to learn all about these strange creatures!

Learn to explore the world through an ecologist’s point of view this week. Come explore the zoo, fall in love with the animals and find out how we can help them and their habitats.

We are Family:
As humans we live in groups for most or all of our lives, and when we are young we need help from parents or other family members. Some animals also do this, but others live on their own right away! This week we will learn why some animals live with family groups, while others do not, and what different animal families look like!

Fly Away Home:
Which animals can fly, how do they fly, and why? Those will be our questions this week as we take a closer look at birds, what allows (most of) them to fly, and why some fly only short distances while others migrate great distances. We will also learn about other flighted creatures!
