Program Type(s): Families
Registration for Nature Play Camp is now open!
Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is excited to announce the addition of Nature Play Camp for children ages 3-4 that will take place in one of the Zoos newest exhibits, Nature Discovery Ridge. A fun filled half day summer camp program where young explorers will discover natural wonders, play outdoors, tour Zoo exhibits and even get up close and personal with a few smaller Zoo residents.
Nature Play Camp will give children the important opportunity to connect with nature and provide unstructured open-ended creative play and discovery. At Nature Discovery Ridge children are invited to climb, splash, and explore the six natural Ohio habitats, while learning about essential elements such as water, shelter, and food. Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is committed to supporting early learning and development, while connecting children with wildlife and nature. Join us this summer and come out and play!
*All Zoo Campers must be fully potty-trained and need no assistance when using the restroom.
**Campers may attend multiple sessions; however we ask that you are aware that the curriculum for Nature Play Camp remains the same each week throughout the summer.
