Journeys to the Past Summer Camp

Join us for a week of fun, fascination and friendship as campers learn about the animals here at ZOOMARS and those who share our planet!

Through crafts, games, songs and storytelling the children will be enriched and enlightened each day about the amazing world of animals and what they teach us.

Campers will work side by side with zookeepers to feed and care for the animals. Campers will also get to polish up their saddles for a special ride around Zoomars trail with one of our Cowboys. We’ll also have special assignments like feeding the llamas, grooming the goats and other surprises. Each day we’ll join in on creating a special craft and will take them home at the end of the week. Campers will enjoy Guest Speakers and their connection to animals all around.

During the course of the week, special guests who do animal shows at ZOOMARS will be dropping by, like a real beekeeper who will show us where honey comes from, a butterfly exhibit and hands on butterfly feeding, and a Native American dancer who will show us how recycled feathers are sacred in the ancient dance.

Miss Jacque, the camp’s director and Juaneno Indian, will talk about Her family’s experiences growing up right here on the zoo’s historical grounds. She’ll share stories about how these early settlers lived in harmony with Mother Earth and the importance of animals in Native American culture. Of course everyone will get to enjoy all the fun ZOOMARS has to offer as they pet, feed, ride & slide while spending lots of cuddle time with the guinea pigs.
