When people think of Florida, they don't usually think of "winter" -- unless they're thinking of a place to escape from the cold! But we can still enjoy our own chillier months with the best of them. Celebrate the Sunshine State's version of the coldest season with 3 days of Zoo Camp fun (including Zoo tours, keeper chats, hands-on activities, and animal encounters for kids in K-5th grades. 

Choose one day or sign up for all three and receive a discount! 

Thursday, December 27: High in the Sky
Quick, look up! In the trees, on the rooftops, and in the air, animals are all around. Learn about wildlife from small fluttering insects to large soaring birds in a day all about our flying and climbing friends. 

Friday, December 28: Aquatic Wonders
Today we shift our focus from the air to the water. Our planet has fresh water, salt water, ice, and clouds...and we all need that water to survive. Join us for a day of exploring how animals use water in surprising ways. 

Saturday, December 29:
Tropical Vacation
