A Wild Nature Exploration for Children in Grades K-5
Just because it's winter, it doesn't mean you need to hibernate—the National Zoo's animals are ready to romp and we are ready for you!
Snow Safari campers will explore the lives, habitats, and conservation of animals around the world. Each four-day session includes exciting hands-on activities, craft projects, science experiments, and walks through the Zoo. (Please note: There is never direct contact with the animals.)
There's "snow" doubt about it! Snow Safari Day camp is the coolest way to spend your winter vacation!
Ages: Campers are grouped into two grade levels: K-1 and 2-5. Snow Safari is not offered at the pre-K level. Children may only be registered for their current grade level.
Snow Safari Day Camp typically runs in December and January.
Where: All classes are held in the Visitor Center classrooms. Please pick up campers in parking lot A. Campers in After-Camp Care must be picked up in the Visitor Center classrooms.
