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.
