Unsure what to do with your children when relatives are arriving and the house is full of holiday chaos? Send them to us!
Thanksgiving Break ZooCamp is for kids in grades K-5th, and runs Monday-Wednesday the week of Thanksgiving. This year we are offering a two-day workshop on Monday-Tuesday and a one-day workshop on Wednesday. Curriculum is designed so that campers can register for both programs without repeating activities.
November 24-25: Zoofari
Are you ready for an adventure? Join us for a two day expedition around the Oakland Zoo. We’ll tour zoo exhibits, make treats for the animals, play games, sing songs, get to meet some animals up close, and make new friends. This program is a great introduction for kids who have not participated in our full week summer camp. For our returning campers, we've included some of our most popular activities. Just remember, when animals are involved, you’ll never have the same experience twice.
November 26: Nature Play
What can you find under a rock in the creek? What signs of wildlife are all around us? The day will fly by as kids tour the zoo, explore Knowland Park, build forts, look for native wildlife, and come nose to nose with nature.
