February Camp Themes
Monday, February 19 – Critter Communication: Presidents should have strong communication skills and must use various forms of communication to get their message across. Do animals express themselves in the same way that we do? Find out while you meet an alpaca, cockatiel, guinea pig, ball python, and Madagascar hissing cockroach. (No extended care available on this day)
Tuesday, February 20 – We’re All in This Together: It takes a village to run a successful presidential campaign and even more people to support the president during their term. You will learn about the relationships that animals have with people, their environment, and each other as you interact with a duck, frog, bearded or water dragon, miniature horse, and parrot.
Wednesday February 21 – Fight or Flight: You will meet a dove, bearded or water dragon, dog, Vietnamese walking stick, and box turtle while you discover how each critter deals with conflict and how they protect themselves and others.
Thursday February 22 – Is winter tough for animals that don’t have fluff?: The drop in temperature affects some animals more than others, but each critter has unique adaptations that allow them to survive. You will meet a chicken, chinchilla, leopard gecko, sheep, and hermit crab as you learn how they deal with the harsh winter months.
Friday, February 16 & 23 – Lend a Helping Paw: You will find out why we should value each animal and what you can do to help them as you interact with a blue-tongued skink, pigeon, rabbit, rosy boa and miniature donkey.
