Where the Wild Things Live

Campers will explore all of the places where animals can live. Some build nests in trees, some dig burrows and some just hide in the bushes. Your camper will explore the zoo to look for wild animal homes and learn how we provide the best shelter for the zoo animals too. They can even build their own shelter in our nature play space. Each day they will explore through activities, play and up-close animal experiences.

Animal Superheroes

Each day campers will explore the amazing super powers that different animals have. Whether they are as fast as a car or can leap tall campers in a single bound, every animal can be a superhero.

Camp includes up-close animal encounters, visits to exhibits and hands-on activities!
