Winter break is a great time for kids to connect with nature and explore the wild realms of the Oregon Zoo. At the zoo’s winter break day camps — held Dec. 21-23 and Dec. 28-31 — campers embark on an imaginative quest each day, meeting animals up close and solving mysteries in different animal kingdoms.
Camp activities — intended for children in kindergarten through fourth grade — include games, songs, stories, snacks, animal visitors and in-depth tours of the zoo.
“It’s a different theme each day, so campers can come for one day, a few days or all seven,” said Tom Gaskill, the zoo’s education programs supervisor.
Prices for the day camps are $41 per person per day for zoo members and $48 per person per day for non-members. Camp hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information and to register, visit oregonzoo.org/daycamps.
