About Learning Adventures Camps (ages 8-11)

Get ready for some hands-on, brains-on fun!  Learning Adventures camps for ages 8-11 are full day, in-depth explorations of some of the most fascinating science and nature topics around.  Each week focuses on a different theme, and includes a variety of engaging activities, including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) explorations, model-making, games, crafts and hands-on encounters with live Animal Ambassadors!  Behind-the-scenes excursions are included when appropriate to the lesson, giving kids an extra special look into CPZ!
