Winter Zoo Camps For Kids At The Micke Grove Zoo
This December 28th , 29th and 30th, the Micke Grove Zoo Education Department is offering Winter Zoo Camps (9:00 AM-Noon) for children ages 5 through 11. These adventure-packed, half-day camp sessions offer campers a chance to play animal-themed games, interact with zoo critters, conduct creative science experiments and collect life-long memories. These sessions give parents a chance to catch their breath from some of their busy holiday plans.
An excellent holiday gift for kids [and their parents], the three separate day sessions of camp are unique so booking one, two or all three sessions will elicit a new adventure every time. “For many families, the gifts will have been opened, played with and set aside while the kids still have energy and excitement to spare. Winter Camp at the Zoo is a creative and engaging outlet where they can explore, create and be inspired to learn,” shared Kristy Benner, Education Coordinator for the Micke Grove Zoological Society.
The cost for each day session is $25 per child for non-members and $22 for members of the Micke Grove Zoological Society (MGZS). Campers are welcome to register for one, two or all three days. Fees include the camp experience plus a camper t-shirt, healthful snacks, and a drop-off/pick-up parking permit. Preregistration is required for all camps and can be completed by calling the Education Department at (209) 331-2138.
Too young for Winter Camp? The Micke Grove Zoo Education Department continues to offer “Zoo Tots” on Tuesday mornings from 10:00 to 11:00 AM. This adult-child partner program offers new topics, games, crafts, stories, snacks and animal encounters every week for our guests [kids ages 18 months to 5 years]. Additional information can be found on the zoo website [www.mgzoo.com].
The Micke Grove Zoo Education Department is managed by the Micke Grove Zoological Society, a nonprofit that supports the Micke Grove Zoo and is located inside Micke Grove Regional Park at 11793 N. Micke Grove Road in Lodi, CA. It is open every day of the year except Christmas from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM; admission gate closes at 4:30 PM.
