New Opportunities to Explore and Learn with CMZoo’s EdVenture Department

December 30, 2020

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s EdVenture Department is finding new ways to connect you with our animals.

These new programs give guests options that suit their comfort level, while still providing up-close, custom animal experiences. Even with virtual options, we can still get you very, very close!

Take a look at some of the newest programs offered:

  • Animal Grams: These short-but-sweet programs are the perfect way to brighten someone’s day! You name the place, the person and the custom message, and we will hand-deliver a piece of artwork made by a very special animal artist. Did we mention that an animal helps with the delivery as well? Animal Grams are quick celebrations perfect for any occasion: birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, baby announcements or just because. Find out more at
  • Family Mini Camps: We always hear from parents that they wish there was a camp for them. Well, now there is! Family Mini Camps help families to spend quality time together while connecting with animals, engaging in hands-on activities, and spending time outdoors in nature. Camps include up-close and hands-on animal time at CMZoo and take-home activities to continue your experience in the comfort of your own home. Camps are booked for just one family at a time, so it is a truly custom Zoo experience. Visit to learn more and register your family!
  • Virtual Programs: We have an array of different programs offered on virtual platforms to experience CMZoo from anywhere! From live animal presentations with our Virtual ZOOMobile programs, to pre-recorded custom Zoo tours, we are sure to have what you’re looking for. Virtual programs can act as surprise supplements to long distance communications too. Video chats with the grandparents could be even better if everyone meets a sloth first!

As always, if there is a program or experience that you do not see, just let us know! We are happy to work with you to create a program that you are excited about!
