The first week of vacation was great right? Tons to do around the house, Christmas gifts to play with… family in town. But now your kids are marching around the house blowing on a $.25 whistle their grandmother gave them and screaming about how the other one is looking at them. No? Only me? Yeah, I didn’t think so…
This mama is tired and needs something for my kids to do to keep them busy and my house less of a hazard zone. You too?
The Palm Beach Zoo is hosting a Winter Zoo Camp this week. The reason I love camp at the Zoo is it’s not just a camp where your kids are going to sit and space out behind a “screen” of some sort. They are out and active. Working with the zookeepers to learn about the animals, their habitats and how they can help creatures that are smaller than they are.
I’m always looking for ways to expose my boys to as much as I can, that they might not get just from reading about it in a book. Plus, remember Palm Beach County Schools don’t return until the 8th. The zoo camp is open on Monday the 7th too… so you don’t have to worry about that lone Monday.
“Winter Break Camp combines our top-rated activities into one fun-filled week,” said Kelly Miller, Education Programs Manager at the Zoo. “There’s a new adventure to explore every single day.”
“Winter Break Camp is a great way to spark children’s interest in nature, educate them on different species, and teach them how to become animal ambassadors. It’s all of your favorite summer camp activities with a wintery spin!
I mean… look at this face. I love that he is able to spend his vacation time learning about things that he loves instead of being cooped up at home.
Memories like this are only created by being a part of it.
Winter Break Camp runs January 2-4 and January 7 from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. but they have before care that starts at 8:15am and aftercare that lasts until 5:00pm. So no matter what your work hours are, this will work.
Camp participants will experience up-close animal encounters, zoo keeping activities, animal habitat visits, behind-the-scenes tours, games, crafts, science experiments, carousel rides, and enriching conservation education activities.

I just love a good visit to the zoo! I really feel as though it is something the whole family can enjoy. Gorgeous pics 🙂 Definitely good to get the kids out of the house every now and again too 😉 Keep Mum sane 😀
Absolutely! Already having a week off, they are going a bit stir crazy around the house. 🙂
Some of my earliest and happiest memories as a child were at the zoo and local animal parks in my town, got a bit nostalgic reading this one
What a fab treat for the kids, I love meeting the animals and owls are my favourite
I love the owls too… Wilbur the Sloth is my favorite though.
This is adorable! Your kids looked like they had a fun time there too. Zoos are really educational for the family!
This looks like so much fun for the kids. Hope you had a great time.
This is so neat! I love that it’s a winter camp for kids. There is often just not enough to do in the colder months.
The zoo is a great place to visit with the kids, but a winter zoo camp sounds even more exciting.
Yes! I would have loved to have done something like that when I was younger. I love that my son will get to experience things and tell me all about them.
I had no idea there was a winter zoo camp. It is great for families in the area.
How Fun! My son would love to go. I’ll have to show him your pictures.
Looks like SO much fun! I would have loved to have the little birdie hang out on my arm.
My kids always love meeting cool animal friends. We love going to our local zoo, which always makes for a fun family afternoon!
