Black Bear

Full-day camp for children ages 6 - 9.



Black Bear lets kids spend the day tracking a grizzly bear, traveling through the forests of Borneo and discovering the Wild in our very own backyard. Each curriculum has a theme which will develop throughout the week with zoo exploration, activities, games, big body play and empathy building opportunities. Curricula align with age-appropriate learning and development standards with an emphasis on both a camper’s development as a scientist and peer collaboration.

Bear Cub

My Ultimate Zoo

If you ran the zoo, what would its habitats look like? There’s much more to it than meets the eye—even for local animals like you’ll find in our new Living Northwest Trail! This fun and fascinating camp will explore everything that goes into designing amazing habitats for incredible animals!

Black Bear

Five to Thrive

Would you like to live in an underground burrow? Or have a bunch of bugs for dinner? Probably not, but there’s someone of some species out there who would! We’ll explore the weird and wonderful ways different animals get their five basic needs met: food, water, shelter, air, and space. Some of them might surprise you!
