Thank you for your understanding.

 

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.
