2013 ZOO CAMP – Amazing Adaptations
All animals have physical or behavioral characteristics that help them survive in the wild. Ranging from the heat of the desert to the cold of the tundra (and all the biomes in between), your child will learn how animals have adapted to their natural habitats. From a camel’s hump to an eagle’s migratory flight, campers will discover why animals look like they do and act like they act. As always, campers will have a fun, learning experience and a chance to have “hands on” interaction with the Zoo’s animal ambassadors.
