Theme: All in the Family - Warm weather is on the way and with it often comes brand new little ones! Growing up wild can be tough.

We'll learn how baby animals survive and thrive in families of all kinds!

Days are filled with crafts, hands-on and inquiry driven activities, encounters with wild animal ambassadors, and guided Zoo tours.

Theme - Odd Weeks: Feeding Frenzy - It's dinner time! With many kinds of ffod come many kinds of adaptations for eating. Using beaks, toes, teeth, paws, big mouths and little mouths, the different ways that animals chow down at mealtimes are as fascinating as the animals themselves. Elbows off the table, dude.

Theme - Even Weeks: Extreme Environments - Remarkable animals have adapted to the most extreme of environments - the dark, deep depths of oceans and caves, seemingly barren deserts and vast ice fields. We'll travel to these unfamiliar worlds and take a close look at the animals that live there, how they survive, and the clever ways scientists study the world's most extreme environments.

Campers may be registered for a maximum of one session of each theme. Registrations beyond this maximum will be cancelled. To be placed on a wait-list, please contact programs@rwpzoo.org or call (401) 785-3510 ext. 358
