How Do Virtual School's Out Camps work?

Zoo staff and participants meet twice a day for 30 to 45 minutes each session.

A daily email provides follow-up activities for participants to complete at home to build upon what they learned! These activities take an estimated 1-2 hours to complete at home, depending on the learner.

Connecting at home is easy. Learners only need a computer, tablet, or smartphone with audio and internet connection or cellular service.

Programs are delivered through a secure platform where Zoo staff will deliver a live program and answer questions from our virtual participants!

Participants get unique views of our animals, participate in engaging activities, and more!

Zoom links will be sent by 3pm the day before camp begins. Please check your spam or junk folders for this email.

This email will include details about activities for campers to do at home the day of camp. This is for planning purposes for the next day. For the best camp experience, these activities are to be done the day of the School’s Out camp and should take an estimated 1-2 hours to complete, depending upon the learner.

Two levels of camp are offered, one for Kindergarten through second grade or third through sixth grade. Younger children will need an adult helper. Siblings are encouraged to attend together.
