Prepare to experience the ultimate summer camp, where fantasy meets imagination and dreams become reality. Each day campers will participate in action-oriented activities that take you into a keeper’s or animal’s world. Challenges and environmental based experiences will provide insight into the world of the wild. For teens entering grades 8–12 in the fall of 2013. Select one or two weeks of adventure:
Survivor Zoo Challenge
Working with animals is both rewarding and challenging! Keepers and vets face amazing challenges each and every day. How do you remove a 13-pound tooth from a 2-ton animal? How do you introduce fierce carnivores to each other for breeding? How do you ship animals across the world to another zoo? These are just a few of the team challenges you’ll face in this fast-paced adventure. Hippos, koalas, and dangerous reptiles are just a few of the animals highlighted.
Survivor Wildlife Challenge
Animals face unbelievable challenges each day in the wild. Just staying alive requires some fancy footwork! Catching prey, eating dinner instead of becoming dinner, finding a mate, keeping your mate from eating you or your offspring—these are just some of the challenges you’ll actively ponder. Lions, primates, and insects are a few of the program’s highlights.
