The popular Frank Buck Zoo four-part day camp series will resume for its final two sessions beginning July 15-19 for ages 6-9 and July 22-26 for ages 9-12.
During Session III, the younger students will be able to watch various animals in their habitats and study the athletic antics of the animals. Children will be able to see how the antics of the animals compare with the physical prowess of humans.
“The kids have a great time in observing the animals and their daily actions such as running, climbing and swinging,” zoo keeper Crystal Salisbury said. “By seeing the animals, the little ones can see possible similarities and differences in comparison with human abilities.”
Session IV will discover more of the mysteries of animal movement as each animal studied has special characteristics that are important for them as they move through their habitats.
“Each species has unique capabilities that allows them to fully adapt to their environments,” Salisbury continued.
With a few spots remaining in these sessions, those interested in learning more about the zoo animals are urged to register for the camp of choice at www.frankbuckzoo.com. Each session will be Monday-Friday each week and will last from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
The camp materials fee is $200 per camper per week.
The Frank Buck Zoo is expected to be a busy venue next week when the Frank Buck Zoological Society and zoo staff mark “National Zookeeper Appreciation Month.”
