Each day at Zoo Camp, we explore a new theme:

March 25 - The Bison in our Backyard

Welcome back to our returning spring migrators. Spring is here and it is time to start enjoying the puddles and fresh air around our North American animals. Our first set of adventures will have us traveling through the prairies and forests. We will bounce through playgrounds and along with horses, as we enjoy games and slingshots. The signs of spring will also inspire our creative art side.

March 26 - Jungle Boogie with Toucan

Life is a beach when we start looking forward to summer. Campers will have the chance to beat their winter blues by enjoying a tropical break at Toucan Ridge. Today, we will celebrate the lush green of plants, and the animals that love the heat. It is definitely a jungle in here, and you should see the fun we are going to have.

March 27 - Tiger Travels to the East

We need to relax during our holidays and a trip to the Far East may just provide the inspiration we require. Our travels will have us swinging with the Gibbons, and traversing a desert with the camels. We will need to create some souvenirs after all our adventures and look at ways to save the planet so others can find the same enjoyment on their journeys.

March 28 - Birding and Batting Below and (Equator) Belt

It is time to move again as we travel the southern hemisphere. Discover the great outdoors as we explore forests and caves in search for bats, birds, and beasts from around the world. Our adventures at the Kinsmen Discovery Centre may allow our campers to discover the secrets of flight or we might be better with a parachute. Don’t worry everything will “fall” into place.

March 29 - Trekking the Tundra with Polar Bears

We won’t let any snow stop us as we journey to Churchill to meet our Polar Bears and other animals of the tundra. We can discover the seasonal changes these animals experience and how they deal with the cold. It may be our last chance for some winter fun, or a new chance to see what new adventures blossom in the upcoming year.
