2018 Snow Safari Day Camp

Owing to inconsistent winter break schedules for local school districts, we will NOT be holding Snow Safari Day Camp in 2018. Please check back next summer for information about Snow Safari Day Camp 2019.

Welcome to FONZ Snow Safari Day Camp! Each of the Snow Safari programs explores a different set of animals and themes. In every program, campers gain a sense of respect and appreciation for the natural world, learning how their actions and decisions affect the environment. Through hands-on activities such as games, crafts, scientific exploration, and experiments, campers have fun while learning about animals and conservation. Campers go on zoo walks each day to get an inside perspective on zoo conservation and animal care. 

We are not offering any camps at this time.
