Do your kids get a little wild when they’re home all day? It can be challenging to maintain a regular work schedule for you when the kids are in holiday mode. Are you looking for a way to keep your children active over spring break, without them turning your home into a zoo?!
Send them to the real zoo – the Calgary Zoo – for the week, where they will get the chance to see and learn on a more immersive level than they would experience with a regular zoo visit!
The camps at the Calgary Zoo are designed to cultivate your child’s natural curiosity and inspire them to take action to sustain wildlife in their world. Through tours of the zoo, games, crafts, activities, and interpretive programs, they will have a fun, action-packed week and learn about the impact they can have in our world. With the opportunity to meet a zookeeper and one of the small ambassador animals up close in the classroom, they will get a unique look at the zoo and its animals. The goal is for kids to experience a safe, fun, and social spring break, while also learning how the Calgary Zoo works to be Canada’s leader in wildlife conservation.
Camps are available for children in grades 1 to 6. Kids will be divided into 2 groups: Zoo Rangers (grades one to three) and Zoo Explorers (grades four to six). At the zoo, kids will have the opportunity to explore the zoo alongside the talented education staff, getting to see the zoo like no regular visitor. Your little zoologist will marvel at the wonderful things they discover about the natural world with experienced education staff members and exciting themed programming. Make the most of your child’s love for animals and the world around them and help them develop their interests at the Calgary Zoo!
Exploring nature and all of its wonder with the zoo’s themed programming will stir a child’s natural enthusiasm for the mysteries of the world. Don’t delay, because both the public and Catholic school board have their Spring Break the same week this year, March 25 – 29, 2019. Camps run from 8:30 am to 4 pm. Experienced education staff members are waiting for your kids to come and join the adventure!
- Before & after-care is available from 7:30 – 8:30 am and 4 pm to 5 pm for a fee.
- All camps include the opportunity to meet and/or touch smaller animals.
