Spring Break Camp 2014: A Sense of Survival
Spring Break Camp: April 14-18, 2014
Living in the wild can be pretty tricky but many animals have amazing senses that can help them to survive! All week, meet animals with finely-tuned senses and see how our own senses measure up! Below is a little sample of the topics we will be covering all week. Each day will include animal encounters in the classroom, tours and activities around the Zoo, behind-the-scenes peeks, crafts, games and more! Please note: Groups will be split into classes according to age and activities will vary by age group.
Monday. April 14 - Get an Earful!: Can you sit quietly for hours and listen? Probably not, but many animals listen to find their food and stay safe!
Tuesday, April 15 - Seeing and Believing!: Can you see in the dark? Or underwater? Come learn how animals have special eyes to help them survive!
Wednesday, April 16 - I've got a feeling!: We use our fingers to feel but how do you feel if you don't have any fingers? Meet animals that have some unusual ways of finding their way around!
Thursday, April 17 - Smell and Tell!: Why does your dog go crazy over fire hydrants? Smells tell stories in the animal world and today in camp we are going to sniff out the mystery.
Friday, April 18 - A Taste of the Wild!: Do you have a favorite food? Many animals eat the same food as we do but some don't! Spend the day learning what tastes good to our animals and help make some tasty treats for our animal friends.
