Spring Break Camp

This March, the NEW Zoo & Adventure Park is offering a fun day of learning & play – it’s the perfect way to keep kids busy during Spring Break! These day-camp, drop-off programs are designed for students in 1st through 4th grades, and each child can attend up to one date. A morning snack is provided by the zoo, but parents must provide a non-microwaveable, non-refrigerated lunch for each child. Each day’s program includes educational presentations, live animal encounters, zoo tours, and other fun activities like games and crafts. Children should dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. Face coverings are required, and our learning spaces will be set to allow for social distancing.

2021 Topic: Growing Up Wild

Every animal species has its own unique life cycle, with its own special stages of development. We’ll explore how the spring season brings many changes for critters around the world – from bugs to birds, we’ll take a close-up look at the interesting ways animals grow and change.

Medication and Allergies

Medication cannot be administered or dispensed by zoo staff (with the exception of EpiPens needed on an emergency basis). Campers must be able to take their own medication. However, staff can carry medications and help children remember to take them. Staff are first-aid and EpiPen trained.  If your child is bringing an EpiPen or other medication to camp, you will be asked to note this on the child’s Release & Waiver Form and provide authorization for its use.  If your child has any food-specific allergies, you are welcome to pack a snack in addition to lunch.  Your child will be permitted to eat their home-packed snacks during snack time.

Special Needs Campers

Please detail any physical, academic, or social special needs your child has that our staff should be made aware of. Special needs will be accommodated to the best of our ability, provided we know in advance of your camp date. If your child is not self-sufficient, you may be asked to provide a non-parent aide for the program(s).  Feel free to give the Education Coordinator a call or send an email to discuss in detail.

Can parents stay with kids?

Our camp program is designed for children who are able to be successful in group-oriented programs without parent involvement.

What happens in poor weather?

Spring Break Camp happens rain, shine, or snow.  Programs will be cancelled by the NEW Zoo if Green Bay City or Howard-Suamico Schools are cancelled due to severe weather, or in the event of a severe weather warning in Brown County.  If your program is cancelled by the NEW Zoo, you will be informed by telephone and email as soon as possible and you will receive a full refund. Programs WILL OCCUR during rain and snow if no severe weather warnings are present.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellations made prior to one week before the date of the program will be refunded 50% of the price of the program. Cancellations made within one week of the program and/or “no-shows” on the day of the program will not receive a refund.
