School breaks are tough for busy parents and having a safe place for kids to socialize is more important than ever, so register for Fall Critter Camp today! This program provides an opportunity for kids in San Diego to learn about and to cultivate compassion for animals. Campers will experience hands-on interactions with a variety of species as well as create crafts, play games and more.
Fall Camp Themes
Monday – Survival of the Species: Meet a frog, chinchilla, duck, blue-tongued skink and goat as you discover the awesome adaptations that allow each animal to survive and thrive.
Tuesday – Whose Lair is Over There?: How does an animal’s habitat influence certain adaptations? Find out when you interact with a hermit crab, small parrot, alpaca, box turtle and chicken.
Wednesday – Howling & Growling: Even though animals don’t use words like we do, they definitely have various forms of communication! Learn how they get their message across as you interact with a guinea pig, large parrot, miniature horse, leopard gecko and bearded dragon.
Thursday – Pawtumn Harvest: There are many factors that distinguish an animal as predator or prey. Interact with a millipede, rabbit, dove, snake and sheep as you find out if these animals are more likely to hunt or hide and if the cooler weather affects their appetite.
Friday – Fall Together Now!: The evenings may be darker and the air is cooler, but animals are still there to brighten our days and warm our hearts. Meet a Madagascar hissing cockroach, dog, pigeon, miniature donkey and California desert tortoise while you discover all of the ways that animals help people and how we can help animals.
Species may vary depending on animal health, safety and availability.
