Spend some time Monkeying Around with your primate pals; discover your creative side with Adventures in Art; take an African Adventure right at Como; or try on the hat of a zookeeper or gardener in Behind-the-Scenes!
Como’s camps focus on expanding each child’s appreciation for the natural world while meeting zookeepers and gardeners, having “behind-the-scenes” experiences and meeting Como’s plant and animal ambassadors up-close!
Qualified and enthusiastic instructors teach camps for children in preschool through eighth grade. Children are accepted into age-appropriate camps based on the grade they will have completed by the end of the 2014-2015 school year.
Camps are half-day sessions, Monday through Friday. All-day adventures are available by taking a morning and an afternoon camp in the same week, within the same age group. A supervised lunch period is included for full day campers. Children bring their own lunch or a box lunch can be purchased in advance. Extended Care is also available for early drop off or late pick up.
