What to Bring to Camp
– Clothing and Accessories:
Campers should dress comfortably and appropriately for the weather. Layers are suggested and good. Closed toe walking shoes are essential. A daypack, sunscreen, and water bottle are highly recommended! If you have a younger camper- a spare set of clothes might be useful as well.
– Snacks & Lunches:
The Zoo will provide each participant with a daily morning and afternoon snack. You are welcome to pack snacks for your camper as well. Please notify the camp staff of any food allergies your child may have. The zoo DOES NOT provide lunch! Please send your child to camp with a lunch!
– Rest Period Comfort Item (Kindergarten only):
A 45 minute rest period will be offered to Kindergarten campers, so a favorite blanket or comfort item might help them to relax during this time.
