It’s nearly time for spring break! Are you ready?
Make it a week of engaging education and adventure for kids from kindergarten through sixth grade. With options to attend camp for one day, all five days or somewhere in between, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo has flexible schedules for you and WILD experiences for the young nature lover in your life.
Spring Break Zoo Camp is Monday, March 25 through Friday, March 29 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for kindergarteners and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for first graders through sixth graders. Camp themes vary by age, and all camps include hands-on experiences, up-close animal encounters, games and more every single day at America’s mountain zoo!
Kindergarten: Hairy Tails
Young “EdVenturers” will hear wonderful stories about animals (including some classics!) and then tour Cheyenne Mountain Zoo to meet and learn about the animals who star in these tales.
First and Second Grade: Mythical Menagerie
Unicorns and dragons may not be found in zoos, but some zoo friends have features that are just as magical. Campers will learn about legendary mythical creatures and then meet the scaled, feathered and four-legged animals who inspired them.
Third and Fourth Grade: Beastly Backstories
All of the animals at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo have fun and interesting stories to tell. For instance, did you know that Jumbe, the black rhino, is actually afraid of butterflies but really wants to be friends with the elephants? Come hear funny, happy and powerful stories about the animals that call CMZoo home.
Fifth and Sixth Grade: Double Takes and Doppelgangers
Most people can tell that gorillas and an orangutans are similar species, but did you know that rock hyrax are related to elephants? This camp will dive into how completely different-looking animals might actually have similar backgrounds.
Get ready for dinnertime did-you-knows, as your campers will surely come home full of new and exciting animal facts to share. Space is limited and camp spots fill up quickly, so register soon to reserve your campers’ place for the animal adventure of the season!
