There are three camp experiences. Second graders have Zoo Detectives Camp. They solve a zoo mystery a day, as well as experience interactive exhibits, learn about nature and how to protect animals and their habitats. This camp will not go behind the scenes with animals because the campers are so young. It runs August 10-14.
Third-fifth grades have Action for Animals. This day camp shows them what is being done to protect animals throughout the world. This camp runs July 6-10, July 13-17 and July 27-31.MORE NEWS: 'Game-Changing' Johnson & Johnson Single-Dose Covid-19 Vaccine Meets Requirements For Emergency Use Authorization, FDA Says
