Vacation Week Camp at the Zoo February 20-24 It’s Always An Adventure – even in the winter at the zoo!
Don’t keep the children inside during February school vacation week – send them to Roger Williams Park Zoo vacation week camp. ZooCamp is one of our most popular programs, and it’s no wonder why –it’s the wildest way to spend a week during school vacation! Children ages 4 – 13 can have a blast during winter, spring and summer school vacations with a week of games, full day crafts, hands-on and inquiry driven activities, encounters with wild animal ambassadors and tours of the Zoo! Children ages 4-5 enjoy Tadpole Academy while kids 6-11 enjoy their days in Winter Adventures camp.
Winter Tadpole Academy
Theme: Storybook Adventures
AM: Michael Dahl
Full of animal-inspired super heroes, goofy monsters and hilarious jokes all inspired by the animal kingdom, Michael Dahl’s books are sweet, silly and tons of fun!
PM: Denise Fleming
From Underground to the Tall, Tall Grass, from the farm to the woods, Denise Fleming’s books explore the world in a whimsical, colorful way!
Instead of keeping the kids inside during February school vacation, send them to Winter Adventures where your child will be engaged in a full day of crafts, hands-on and inquiry driven activities, encounters with wild animal ambassadors and even bundled-up tours of the Zoo where each camper will get a chance to feed the goats in the Alex and Ani Farmyard. Please note: Only campers that attend all 5 days will receive a t-shirt and ZooCamp Access Pass.
THEME: SUPER SENSES
Our five senses tell us what we need to know about the world around us. Animals need this information to hunt, navigate and survive in ever-changing environments. Animals might see with their ears, taste with feet, or even smell with their tongues!
