Animal Survivor!

What animal can outlast them all? Maybe the top Animal Survivor needs the speed of a cheetah, the night vision of an owl, and the jaws of a crocodile! Your camper will learn about what makes animals super survivors through games and activities, up-close animal encounters, exhibit visits, and nature exploration. Campers will put learning into action by designing their very own Animal Survivor that can live anywhere!
