Camp Weeks & Themes

Welcome to my Biome...

Biomes are regions on Earth that have a certain climate and contain certain living things. Each week offers a different biome for campers to explore. Games, experiments, live animal encounters, crafts, stories, animal feedings, keeper encounters and more will be used to teach campers all about each biome and the animals that call it home.

WEEK 1 • June 3-6 • Temperate Deciduous Forest

The only escape is hibernation or migration! Hold on tight as we go from 0 to 100... degrees!

WEEK 2 • June 10-13 • Desert

Wow, it's hot here! Or is it cold? The desert climate isn't always what you think, and many different animals make it their home.

WEEK 3 • June 17-20 • Rainforest

Humid, sticky and wet is the way the animals like it in the rainforest. With such diversity here there is no end to all this biome has to offer!

WEEK 4 • June 24-27 • Savannah

The biggest land mammals on earth roam the plains on this swath of land between desert and forest. It's warm, it's dangerous, and it's waiting to be discovered!

WEEK 5 • July 1-3 • Marine/Tundra/Taiga
(Reduced price for this "Week")

We'll explore a different biome each day in this shortened camp week. From whales, to walruses, to wolves, these biomes are full of interesting features and curious creatures. (No camp on July 4)

WEEK 6 • July 8-11 • Grasslands

About 25% of the world's land surface is covered by grasslands. The temperate prairie of Kansas will be highlighted in this final week of camp as we get to know the environment we call home.

Junior Zoo Keepers

WHEN: June 7, 14, 21, 28 and July 5
