Phoenix Zoo: Summer Camp Zoo – Build a Zoo Habitat

Grades 3 & 4: Build a Zoo Habitat

How does the Phoenix Zoo design homes for animals? Campers will learn all about how to build an exhibit in the Zoo, Species Survival Plans, and how zoos design spaces that help care for animals’ physical and mental wellbeing. Campers will then get to design and build a model Zoo habitat for the animal of their choice!

June 17 – 21

 

This year’s camp is all about finding out what it takes to creatively care for animals. Campers will explore habitats, learn how animals survive and thrive, and learn about the many ways zoos create habitats and care for animals.

All campers will meet animals up-close, play in our splash pads, and have opportunities to collaborate with other campers through different activities each day. Campers will also tackle design challenges related to their theme, incorporating STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) principles and going through the design process. They’ll use what they learn about the animals to create real-world solutions and top off the week presenting their design.

Due to high temperatures in the summer, at least half of the camp day is spent indoors, with opportunities to expand indoor time as temperatures rise.
