Brevard Zoo Winter Camps


The Brevard Zoo is offering two different zoo camps over winter break for kids in kindergarten through 4th grade. The camps will explore animal adaptations and Florida wildlife in a fun and creative way. These exciting camps offer one-of-a kind experiences to satisfy your child’s interest in science, conservation and nature.

Wild Florida is the first camp from January 2-4 and includes the following:

- Sluice and Fossil Tents: You get to dig up your own fossils and learn all about them.

- Make Your Own Fossils: Campers use a mold to make fossils to take home.

- Snake Science Station: Learn all about both venomous and nonvenomous snakes.

- Beeswax Candles: Make your very own candles out of beeswax.

It’s all about Habitats January 7-9 with the following highlights:

- Armadillo Armor: Find out how armadillos protect themselves at the petting zoo, then put on your very own armor.

- Egg Drop Experiment: Build a contraption to protect a raw egg from a high fall.

- Dip Netting: Collect critters from the pond with plankton tows to study under a microscope.

- Blubber gloves: A gooey experiment where campers find out what blubber feels like.

Come and see the brand new Mystery Trail, where campers have 20 minutes to find clues, navigate a trail and solve mysteries.

Camps are 8-4 p.m daily. The price is $175 per week for zoo members and $195 for non-members.
