Spring Break Camp

Who is it for?

Kids (6-8 or 9-12) who love exotic animals and adventure! Imagine coming every day to an exotic animal rescue, hanging out with friends – whether they have feet, claws, or wings – and observing and learning about all these amazing exotic animals who share our planet. 

Send your kids on a wild adventure during Spring Break, with a camp experience they’ll never forget. Help them discover some of the planet’s most incredible creatures. Your children will impress you with how much they learn as they enjoy activities, games, and animal encounters.

About the Camp

Spring Break Camp is for young Naturalists, Environmentalists, Animal lovers, and those curious about the Natural World. Children taking part in our animal education camps will learn about animals of all kinds and the fundamentals of animal conservation efforts and animal welfare education. All while having fun!.

Your child will meet a new animal each day who will spend time with us in the classroom!

During this week, your child will learn about different animal families through a variety of activities. We integrate crafts, outdoor play, games, fun activities, races, nature documentaries, observation, hands-on care of some animals, and food prep for some animals. The camp is 5 days and covers 5 different animal families: Bug day, Reptile day, Bird and Fish day, Amphibian day and Mammal day. 

The camp allows children to explore their curiosity about the natural world in our relaxed, unique facilities surrounded by our hundreds of rescued exotic animals.

All the registration fees go towards the care and feeding of our rescued exotic animals.

Ferrets have silly playful personalities that will bring the kid out in even the grumpiest grandpa. Although Ferrets spend much of their day sleeping, when they are awake they love to run, explore, hide in tunnels, and steal shiny objects. In fact, their name comes from Latin and means little thief. Their antics show off their flexibility, climbing skills, and rampant curiosity. Domesticated over 2500 years ago, they hunted rodents and rabbits to keep grain supplies safe, which is where we get the term ‘ferret out’. They also have a scent gland, like a skunk, so you need to have that removed by a vet before taking one as a pet.
