2018 Safari Day Camp
Summerfield Zoo is hosting 4 FUN-FILLED weeks of summer camp this year! Each week has a different theme and organization to it. Every week will learn about the animals that call the zoo home, have game and craft time, and special interactions with specific animals. Each week will only be limited to TWELVE PARTICIPANTS. Please reserve your child's spot NOW!!
Each week the following interactions will be included: baby goat feedings, pony rides, pictures with the animal ambassador of your child’s choice and animal presentations.
Week 1 – Zooper Explorer (June 4-8) – This week focuses on learning about the zoo and what goes in to making the animals feel like they are at home. Participants will learn about feeding, care, and enrichment (toys and games for the animals). Some of the activities include: making treats for the animals, animal scavenger hunt, and creating toys for the animals.
Week 2 – Zoo Crew (June 18 -22) – This week focuses on learning about Zookeeping behind the scenes and what it takes to be a zookeeper! Participants will be allowed to do some (age-appropriate and safe) chores that zookeepers do every day, such as feeding and cleaning. If your child has a passion for animals and their care, this Zookeeper 101 camp is for them! Some of the activities include: daily feeding of animals, being a real Zookeeper, and track identification.
Week 3 – Zoonatomy (July 9-July 13) – This week focuses on animal adaptations and the anatomy of a zoo. Participants will learn about the history and changes of animals and the cool tricks they learn to survive! Some activities include: interactive comparisons of animals, crafts, an “Adaptation Station”, and many more!
Week 4 – Zoo Crew 2 (July 23-July 27) – This week focuses on how the zoo helps to rescue animals and keep them happy and healthy. Participants will learn about recreating the natural environment of our animals through feeding, habitat creation, and rehabilitation (making animals healthy again).
