Though it feels like summer just ended, fall is here. That means your children will soon have a full week off school. Don’t worry though; Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is here with new camp adventures!
Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is offering Fall Break day camps November 19-20-21 and 23 (no camp November 22) for kids Kindergarten – 6th grade. These camps feature all-new themes based around the amazing autumn season, and they’ll celebrate the many animals that call our Zoo home.
- Kindergarten Camp (1/2 day) – Fall Mask-grrrrr-ade Ball allows kids to learn about lots of different species and make fun wearable crafts that let them feel like a wild animal. Campers who attend multiple days will create pieces that can be combined to make one amazing mix-and-match species!
- 1st/2nd Grade Camp (full day) – The Colors of Fall is all about finding animals that blend in with those warm oranges, reds and browns of fall. They will identify the color palette of autumn and go on a zoo-wide search, investigating the animals that match that palette.
- 3rd/4th Grade Camp (full day) – Marvelous Mud is exactly what it sounds like! Because, what would fall be without splashing in mud puddles after a cool afternoon rain? The campers won’t be the only ones enjoying this messy week, as they meet other animals who love wallowing in mud during any season!
- 5th/6th Grade Camp (full day) – Pumpkin Parade will clearly show that there is so much more to do with pumpkins than make jack-o-lanterns and pie. These campers will create fun and crazy ways to not only smash pumpkins to bits but also try their hand at launching pumpkins through the air. They will also get lots of opportunities to create pumpkin enrichment for our animals to enjoy.
All camps include a daily snack, tours around the Zoo, and hands-on animal opportunities everyday! These camps are designed for smaller groups, so space is limited. If you are interested in signing up a camper or want more information on these fun-filled fall camps, please visit cmzoo.org/camp.
