“I've never seen [my daughter] so enthused about any school or camp experience before…  Schools could take a lesson or two from your curricula -- you managed to integrate content with experience, problem solving, and cooperative group work.  You even got kids taking notes -- and looking back at them. And loving every minute of it…. My daughter was in heaven for a week.  Thank you and thank you again.”

Lise Brody, parent of a ZooCamper

(Ages 6 - 10)
