From African plains to South American forests, mountain cliffs to ocean depths, the world is full of amazing animals perfectly adapted to their unique habitats. Grab your binoculars and your passport; you won’t want to miss this wild week!
Spring is in the air, but flowers aren’t the only things blooming. So are new programs at the Smithsonian's National Zoo! This spring break, sign your child up for FONZ's Spring Safari Day Camp!
Each of the Spring Safari programs explores the lives, habitats and conservation of animals around the world. Week-long sessions include exciting hands-on activities, lessons, craft projects, science experiments and walks through the Zoo. There’s no better way to spend your spring break than with Friends of the National Zoo! Please note: There is no direct contact with animals, and campers do not participate in animal care.
