SUMMER CAMPS ( Sacramento Zoo) : PURPLE

Run by Sacramento Zoo Ages 10-11 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.

It’s Showtime:
Take center stage! Campers work with our Interpretive Center zookeepers every day and learn how to handle the zoo’s animal ambassadors. During the week, the campers will create and practice a live animal show that will be performed at 3 p.m. on Friday. What will they think up this year?

Critter Twitter:
We can talk to anyone, anywhere, at any time using cell phones, texting, Facebook, email and Twitter. Without these human tools, how do animals get the word out? Join the adventure as we explore the art of communication — animal style — and improve our own interpretation skills. Don't miss the buzz about this exciting camp!

Survivor: Zoo Edition:
To survive in the wild, animals must outwit their predators and outlast others of their species. Explore the world of animal survival this week while outplaying fellow campers in physical and mental challenges!

From Myth to Reality:
Humans often tell stories of amazing creatures like dragons, centaurs and merpeople. Although these creatures are mythical, their origins are based in reality. Campers this week will learn about the animals at the root of some of these mythical creatures and will also get creative in inventing their own mythical creature!

ZSI: Zoo Scene Investigator:
Grab your crime scene tape and become a Zoo Scene Investigator! Use your knowledge of zoo animals and observational skills to find the hidden clues and crack the code of an unsolved zoo mystery!

Sketch & Sculpt Safari:
The oldest of our zoo camp artists always come up with amazing projects! This year you will have opportunities to sketch a favorite animal, as well as a chance to try your hand at 3-D art!
