Summer Camps at the Abilene Zoo
Kids driving you nuts yet? What if there was something fun and educational for them to do during the day? Well, there is and it’s at the Abilene Zoo. They have their annual summer camp classes coming up with lots of fun in store.
The classes are for pre-schoolers up to 5th grade. Classes cover learning about animals (for the little ones), learning how the zoo works, learning about animals that hunt, how animals disguise themselves, native Texas animals, and more. The classes are week long, usually from 9-2:30 pm and there are a variety of subjects to choose from in each age group. There is also after camp care until 5:15pm for a few extra dollars. It sounds like fun but is educational at the same time (but you don’t have to tell them they will be “learning”).
Classes for pre-schoolers (must be potty trained) are from 9a – 12p and are $75 for members/$85 for non-members. The classes for kindergarten-5th grades are from 9 am – 2:30 pm and are $125 for members/ $145 for non-members.
The classes vary for each age group as do the weeks they are offered. Classes start as early as June 9th and continue throughout the summer. The zoo will also offer after camp care until 5:15 for $10 a day. For more information on the classes, prices and age groups please contact Joy Harsh at (325) 676-6487 or visit the Abilene Zoo website.
