Zoo-Cation Day Camps (Ages 4 - 11)

A day off from school opens up an opportunity to learn, explore, and make friends in a unique one-day camp only available at Roger Williams Park Zoo. Zoo-Cation one-day camps engage campers in a full day of crafts, hands-on and inquiry-driven activities, encounters with wild animal ambassadors, and a tour of the Zoo that includes an opportunity to feed the goats in the ALEX AND ANI Farmyard.  

Theme: A Trip Around the World
We may not be able to circle the world in a day off from school, but we can still discover animals, habitats, and cultures of the continents.  We will travel to a different region of the world during each of these four single-day camps.  Our adventures will focus on learning about the cultures of the continent, native animal species, and the habitats where humans and animals reside.
