What does winter mean for animals? Your kids can find out at Winter Critter Camp in San Diego! Campers will discover why chinchillas don’t mind being chilly, how reptiles deal with falling temperatures, and how other critters cope with the changes caused by cold weather. Each day is full of hands-on animal encounters plus themed activities, crafts, and games!
Winter Camp Themes
Monday – Cozy Critters: Winter might not be so bad for our fluffy friends but what about cold-blooded critters? Interact with a goat, frog, box turtle, hermit crab, and chinchilla as you learn about the amazing adaptations that help these animals survive in the cold.
Tuesday – Dashing through the snow: It’s fun to frolic around in the snow, but it can be hard to do when you’re bundled up from head to toe! Meet a ball python, alpaca, pigeon or dove, millipede, and tortoise as you learn about their unique movements and how the chilly weather affects their mobility.
Thursday – Family FURst: Meet a cockatiel, rabbit, water or bearded dragon, small parrot, and sheep as you find out how animal families help each other during the harsh winter months.
Friday – Large or small, cherish them all!: Interact with a rosy boa, large parrot, dog, Madagascar hissing cockroach, miniature donkey, and visit the adoptions center as you gain a better understanding of why we should show compassion for all kinds of critters.
Species may vary depending on animal health, safety and availability.
