Spring Break Session
As part of our commitment to the continued well-being of our guests, team members and the animals in our care, and in ongoing efforts to assist our community in preventing the spread of COVID-19, we have implemented enhanced protocols and procedures you will notice during your visit.
When school is out, Camp is in! We are here to engage and excite your young learners ages 5-11. These minds-on programs allow campers to visit animals on grounds, explore biofacts, and take part in science experiments and demonstrations. Campers will learn about the biology and behaviors of amazing creatures, the problems many animals face in the wild, and ways they can help wildlife and wild habitats.
If you are a current resident of Fulton County or City of Atlanta and your child attends a Title One school, you are eligible for our Safari Camp Scholarship Program.
These programs will take place in-person. To ensure the safety of all participants and educators, capacity for these programs has been greatly reduced, campers will stay with their group for the entirety of the program, and all participants and campers will adhere to the safety protocols as outlined below. Campers should provide their own snacks and lunches. We will continue to monitor all health reports and, with advance notice, reserve the right to transition to a virtual Camp if necessary.
April 5-9, 2021: WILD Water!
Safari Camp hours: 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
(Drop-off: 8:30-9 a.m., Pick-up: 4-4:30 p.m.)
Water is a resource that is vital to life. Spend the week with us as we investigate and build watersheds to learn about the distribution of water on Earth; the numerous relationships humans and animals have with water; how much water is accessible for use; and ways to use water sustainably. At the end of the week, campers will gain appreciation for one of Earth’s most precious resources and will be ready to seek out ways to be conscientious water consumers!
