Zoo Camp


Winter Camp | January 2 - 4, 2019

Kick off the new year and join us for some winter wonderland fun and games at Assiniboine Park and Zoo! Children will make memories and new friends while we explore the surrounding Park and Zoo, enjoy nature, learn about animals, and play games. We begin and end each day at the centrally-located Qualico Family Centre so we can explore both the Park and Zoo with ease! Winter camp is designed for children in Grades 1 - 6.

FEE: $135 + GST for all three days | $50 + GST for single days (members save 10%)
DROP-OFF: 8:00 – 9:00 am at the Qualico Family Centre (330 Assiniboine Park Drive)
PICK-UP: 4:00 – 5:00 pm at the Qualico Family Centre (330 Assiniboine Park Drive)

Register for all three days or just the ones you need.

Winter Weather
We are always mindful of the weather, but like to spend some time outdoors each day, so please come dressed appropriately and prepared for some snowy winter fun. Each day (weather permitting), we will try to make time for campers to choose between skating and sledding. If a camper would like to skate, they need to bring their own skates and a helmet.

Day 1 - Wednesday, January 2 | Snow Play
Winter is so cold it's COOL, and that's worth celebrating! We will spend part of the day in the Zoo learning about nature photography, go birding in the English Garden, and make snow creations. Of course the day won’t be complete with some downhill sledding in the Nature Playground.

Day 2 - Thursday, January 3, 2019 | ARTic Designs
Let the snow spark your imagination! Create your own land art piece, snow painting, and ice sculpture, plus much more. We will spend time Zoo and venture to the heart of the Park for sledding or skating. 

Day 3 - Friday, January 4, 2019 | Arctic Adaptations
We will take a Journey to Churchill to visit our tundra friends, and see what animals need to survive the cold. Our explorations will take us around the Zoo as we examine how animals are suited for their environment in the wild and at the Zoo.
