This holiday season, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is offering its first ever special Winter Break Camp for kids ages 5-12.
The three-day camp runs from Wednesday, December 26 through Friday, December 28 with half-day (9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) and full-day (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.) sessions available.
Kids will meet in the Jungle Lab classroom at The RainForest and explore a different theme each day including Primates, Cats & Aquatics, Animals of Africa and The RainForest.
Each interactive and educational session includes tours of Zoo exhibits, Get Close encounters with small animals, arts and crafts and conservation-themed games.
�We saw a need for a fun, educational program over the traditional winter break from school,� said Zoo Curator of Education Vicki Searles. �So we created our first Winter Break Camp to engage kids at the Zoo with hands-on, conservation-themed activities and give them a break from TV and video games.�
