Urban Wildlife

Do you enjoy the animals you find in your backyard or neighborhood park?  It's likely that the zoo has similar inhabitants on its grounds.  Together we'll observe these animals and learn what makes them thrive in their urban habitats.  

Desert Lizard

Desert Wildlife

June 20-24

So many unique species reside in our neighboring desert landscapes! Adaptations in animals are especially important to these arid-loving life forms.  Raptors, lizards, and interesting mammals await your curiosity.

Grassland Wildlife

Savanna, pampas, prairies- whatever you call it, life abounds in grassland habitats around the world.  Many Pueblo Zoo animals feel right at home in our prairie landscapes.  Find out what your favorite grassland dweller is this week at the zoo.

Forest Wildlife

Whether they be boreal, rain or temperate, forests are incredibly important to a myriad of species.  The trees themselves are important to humans too!  Grow your knowledge of these dynamic habitats this week at camp.

Water

June 27-July 1

The elements have fascinated humans across time and around the planet.  We'll be diving into the element of water this week, celebrating its importance, exploring creatures who call it home, and planning ways we can keep it clean for the future.

Flight

Air

July 5-8 (4 Days)

The elements have fascinated humans across time and around the planet.  We're 'lifting off' to get a better sense of what our flying friends rely upon- clean air, friendly skies (and windows), and nice dark nights.

Bonfire in Sand

Fire

July 18-22

The elements have fascinated humans across time and around the planet.  This week we'll be safely sparking up our imaginations and learning that while fire in ecosystems can be natural and nurturing, too much can lead to tough consequences.  What can we do to help? Hang out with us this week to find out!

Earth

July 25-29

The elements have fascinated humans across time and around the planet.  In our final week of camp, we're digging into the earth.  What makes up soil, how does it become rich, and what animals benefit from healthy earth (hint: pretty much all of them)? Composting, seed dispersal, and underground creatures will be highlighted this week.
