Winter Break Camps~ Dec. 26, 27, Jan. 2, 3
Hoping to escape the cold this winter break? Come to the zoo and find out how the animals stay warm! If you’re thinking about staying inside out of the cold this winter break, consider coming to the zoo and see how our warm weather animals are handling these cold days! See some of the world’s largest warm climate animals and find out what they do in the snow, then check out how our zoo keepers keep water animals warm and happy during the winter. Some animals here at the zoo come from places where the seasons do not change, and it’s always warm. How do we keep those animals from getting “cabin fever”? Have you seen any animals near your house on those cold winter days? Find out what makes some animals stay and some go during the cold seasons.
Each day will include time inside and outside as well as up-close and personal time with some Zoo animals.
