Summer Camp in a Box

June 25, 2020

It finally feels like summer! The weather is warm, the Zoo is open, and camp is in full swing. Summer Camp at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is a uniquely wild experience, and this summer is no different. Well, it’s a little different.

There are new guidelines in place to help keep staff, guests and campers happy and healthy during their visit. With smaller camp groups, we have been able to make our camp programs match guidelines put in place by our local and state health departments and the Centers for Disease Control. These smaller camp groups also mean that camps have sold out very quickly. There are a few spots left, but they likely won’t last long!

If your child did not get the chance to sign up or your family has decided that you feel safer at home, we have a camp option for you! Summer Camp in a Box is a new way to experience camp activities from the comfort of home. We take all the fun pieces of camp, pack them into a box and send camp to you! You can still connect with the Zoo and enjoy hands-on activities, guided virtual tours, virtual animal encounters and create fun animal enrichment!

Camp in a Box allows you to pick and choose your campers’ activities. You pick the content, we gather all the materials and send it home. It is a great blend of hand-on activities supplemented with virtual content. The goal is to still connect campers with wildlife and wild places, even if it means from your own backyard.
