How Adaptations Help Animals Survive
Animal Body Builders:
Tongues that grasp, noses with amazing suction power, insects with horns, and much more will be explored in this fun camp dedicated to a closer look at adaptations. Lots of keeper interactions and treks into off-exhibit areas make this camp a winner.

Parts for Stayin’ Alive:
Creature features so unbelievable that they seem to be from another world are the target study for this camp.
