If your young ones are enamored by colorful birds, don’t miss the 2-day Bird Quest Camp (Nov 25-26, Thur-Fri, $120 per child) where they’ll get a chance to get up close and personal with their new feathered friends, as well as engage in hands-on bird keeping experience. Cost includes admission to the park, panorail rides, conducted tours, all meals stated and materials for art and craft.

Recommended for kids between the ages of 3-12, registration will be capped at 40 participants.

For an even more intensive experience for your budding safari explorer, the Zoo is also holding its Zoo Explore Camp (Nov 22-26, Mon-Fri, $420 per child). Definitely not for the faint of heart!
