Spring and summer vacations are fast approaching and what better way to keep your children active than enrolling them in ZooCamp!
We spoke with Jen Rudolph, Program Animal Specialist of Roger Williams Park Zoo, who highlighted all that is offered through this camp.
There’s still time to register for ZooCamp:
- ZooCamp is an affordable vacation option for April and summer school vacations.
- There are less than 10 spots left for kids age 6 – 10 in April Zoo Adventures camps, but the Tadpole Academy camps for ages 4 and 5 are sold out for spring vacation week.
- This is why we encourage people to register online as soon as they can, because spots fill up quickly.
- During the summer, we have 10 one-week sessions both Tadpole Academy and Zoo Adventures starting June 13 – August 19. There are crafts, hands-on and inquiry driven activities, encounters with wild animal ambassadors and tours of the Zoo, all based on a theme for each session.
- We also have 8 one-week summer sessions for kids 11 – 13, called Conservation Heroes. Campers learn to transform passion for conservation and wildlife into leadership skills. That was so popular last year we added two extra weeks again this year.
- All campers will have a chance to feed the goats and sheep at the Alex and Ani Farmyard. They will also receive a special ZooCamp Access Pass to experience fun offerings, like the Camel Rides or new Birds from Down Under special exhibit, on a return visit to the Zoo.
- NEW FOR 2016: ZooCamp now offers aftercare on Fridays for parents need extra time before picking up their campers.
- It’s never too soon to sign up for summer camp in order to make sure you secure a week that is best for your family.
- All camp details and easy online registration are at rwpzoo.org in the Education section.
