What's For Lunch?

Location: Bronx Zoo (WCS), Bronx, NY

Dates: Monday, August 12-Friday, August 16, 2019

During this mouthwatering week, campers will explore what it takes to be a carnivore, herbivore, omnivore, and scavenger. Each day, campers will meet an animal that likes to eat something special. Through educational games, dramatic play, sensory exploration, art play, exhibit visits, up-close animal encounters and hands-on science investigations, campers will understand what it takes for that animal to get dinner on the table.  Campers will share their camp experience with caregivers on Friday at a special closing ceremony!
