Make the most of your child’s day off school by exploring the "living classroom" here at the Smithsonian's National Zoo! In this multi-grade program, campers gain a sense of respect for the animals at the Zoo and an appreciation of the hard work that keepers put into caring for animals. With hands-on activities such as games, crafts and scientific exploration, campers will have fun learning about conservation. Campers will also go on a Zoo walk and get an inside perspective on Zoo conservation and animal care from keepers and other Zoo staff.
