Winter Weather
We are always mindful of the weather, but like to spend some time outdoors each day, so please come dressed appropriately and prepared for some snowy winter fun. Each day (weather permitting), we will try to make time for campers to choose between skating and sledding. If a camper would like to skate, they need to bring their own skates and a helmet.

Day 1 - Wednesday, January 2 | Snow Play
Winter is so cold it's COOL, and that's worth celebrating! We will spend part of the day in the Zoo learning about nature photography, go birding in the English Garden, and make snow creations. Of course the day won’t be complete with some downhill sledding in the Nature Playground.

Day 2 - Thursday, January 3, 2019 | ARTic Designs
Let the snow spark your imagination! Create your own land art piece, snow painting, and ice sculpture, plus much more. We will spend time Zoo and venture to the heart of the Park for sledding or skating. 

Day 3 - Friday, January 4, 2019 | Arctic Adaptations
We will take a Journey to Churchill to visit our tundra friends, and see what animals need to survive the cold. Our explorations will take us around the Zoo as we examine how animals are suited for their environment in the wild and at the Zoo.
