The gifts are all unwrapped and the relatives have all gone home. How
does a parent keep their kids occupied during that week of vacation
between Christmas and New Year's? Bring them to Cleveland Metroparks
Zoo's Winter Break Camp!
Winter Break Camp is a week of
hands-on, fun activities for children ages 5-10 focusing on how active
the Zoo's animals are in winter and how the Zoo cares for them
year-round. Winter Break Camp includes Zoo exhibit tours, Get-Close
encounters with small animals, arts and crafts, and conservation-themed
games and stories.
Kids will meet in the Jungle Lab
classroom at The RainForest before setting off to discover the Zoo.
Campers will explore the lives, habitats and conservation of animals
around the world. The four-day camp runs from Monday, December 29
through Friday, January 2 (no camp on January 1) with half-day (9 a.m.
to 12:30 p.m.) and full-day (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.) sessions available.
Half-day registration is $110 per child and full-day registration is
$155 per child. Cleveland Zoological Society members receive a discount,
with half-day registration costing $95 per child and full-day costing
$135 per child.
�The best way to fend off the dreaded,
�I'm bored,' is to keep your kids active and engaged over their days off
from school,� said Zoo Director of Conservation Education Vicki
Searles. �And what could be more fun than spending winter break
exploring the Zoo and seeing animals up close?�
