When night comes, can you see as well as a tiger or hear as well as an owl? Children entering first and second grade will explore the heightened senses of nocturnal animals while hiking through the Zoo, and they will get the chance to test their sense of taste on delicious s'mores.
Follow Zoo trails in the cooler twilight hours on a search for insects! Campers entering third and fourth grade enjoy an evening at the Zoo to see how animal behavior changes when the sun goes down and test their skills at firefly communication. The visit is complete with s'mores and a special craft.
How are animals that are active at night different than those that are active during the day? Children entering fifth and sixth grade join us on a nocturnal adventure to learn more about these fascinating animals and the adaptations that help them to survive. Campers design their own night animal and enjoy a yummy s'mores snack.
