Campers will jump into a different habitat every day, learning all about the benefits and challenges of living in places like the African Savanna or the rainforest. S.T.E.M learning is introduced into each session by having students build animal shelters, count how many animals we have around the zoo, and many more engaging activities!

July 13-17: Nature Explorers

Does your camper enjoy digging up worms, watching birds, or playing outside? Join our Nature Explorers week where campers will explore the natural world through nature play and observation. Campers will meet animals of all shapes and sizes and learn about what makes each one special. We will explore how worms keep our planet healthy, and learn why rabbits have big floppy ears! This camp is very hands-on with animal experiences, interactive activities, and fun crafts to take home. 

July 27-31: Super Senses

Super strength and super senses are not just for the superheroes in movies and comic books. This week of camp dives, runs, and hops into the real superhero lives of animals! Campers will make enrichment and puzzles for our animals and watch their super senses go to work. This week includes activities, games, and up close animal meet and greets.

August 3-7: Backyard Bonanza

Pennsylvania has over 400 kinds of birds, around 60 types of mammals, and over 30 different reptiles, right here in our neighborhoods and backyards! During this week, campers will learn to identify some of our most common backyard friends and will discover ways to help out our native wildlife. This week of camp has a S.T.E.M component, with campers counting animals, building habitats, and discovering the natural history of Pennsylvania.

August 17-21: Animal Detectives

Is your camper naturally curious? This camp will spark the imagination and lead campers on an adventure of discovery through the animal kingdom. Campers will figure out clues to determine the ambassador animal they will get to meet each day and uncover many more animal mysteries along the way. This camp includes hands on activities, games, and close up animal encounters!
