Day 1: Wednesday, December 28 - Tropical Escape
Let’s take a tropical vacation at the Zoo! We will take in the green wonders that are still thriving at the Zoo.

Day 2: Thursday, December 29 - Snow Play!
This day is all about celebrating what makes winter so cool! Spend part of the day in the Zoo to learn what animals do to have fun. 

Day 3: Tuesday, January 3 - Art-ic Designs
Let the snow add sparkle to your imagination during this day of art.  Campers will create art out of nature, taking inspiration from the wild.

Day 4: Wednesday, January 4 - Adapting to the Conditions
Time for a trip around the Zoo to examine how animals are suited for their environment in the wild and at the Zoo.

Each day (weather permitting), we will try to make time for campers to choose between skating or sledding in Assiniboine Park. If a camper would like to skate, they need to bring their own skates and a helmet. We have crazy carpets available for those who would like to sled.

Please note: By attending both dates in a single month, a camper should see the majority of the Zoo.
