Summer Camp

We have reinvented camp into an online experience that can take place anywhere! Each morning, campers will meet for a roll call and a special activity (think engaging science activities, exhibit visits, and more). Throughout the day, there will be three additional live sessions led by our Conservation Educators. These live sessions may include animal encounters, behind the scenes exhibit visits, and opportunities to meet WCS animal keepers and scientists. We will also offer a suite of daily self-directed activities that campers and their families can do on their own schedule. We’ll create opportunities to share projects and develop a sense of community that is so important to the camp experience.
