Summer Camp at the Zoo

catch of the day fish (2)Today we’re focusing on the furthest thing from this weather: summer camp. Early as it may seem, it is in fact time to start thinking about how the kids will spend their days once school is out. One great option to check out is the week-long summer camp offered by the Maryland Zoo. It’s a great way to get the kids outside, and to give them an amazing experience interacting with and learning about the zoo’s amazing animals. The zoo’s camps work for kids from grades 2-8. And with each age group, there’s a slightly different focus– from crafts and zoo exploration for the youngest campers to wildlife conservation for the older campers. Kids (and adults) of all ages love the zoo; but so often, we want that behind-the scenes experience that zoologists get everyday. That’s exactly what the zoo’s summer camp offers. Campers will chat with the zookeepers and get up close and personal with some of the zoo’s top Animal Ambassadors. They’ll feed the giraffes, brush the goats, and even get to go for a camel ride. Certainly more exotic than most camps can offer. Registration is open now for all sessions.
