Spring Break Camp

**Spring Break Camps are cancelled for 2020**

2020 Topic: Art, Animals, Adventure!

We’re excited to announce that this March, the NEW Zoo & Adventure Park is offering a brand new, fun day of learning & play – it’s the perfect way to keep kids busy during Spring Break! The Zoo and Adventure Park are teaming up to provide this program, which will focus on animals, art, and adventure. During the morning, campers will meet animals and learn about some of the amazing adaptations that make them unique. We’ll discuss the important roles these animals – and certain endangered species – play on the planet. Campers will then use their artistic abilities to create animal enrichment (toys for the animals!), along with posters and more – some of which will be displayed at the NEW Zoo during our Earth Day event on Saturday, April 25th. After lunch, our focus will shift to “getting up and moving around!” Adventure Park staff will challenge campers physically and mentally with fun, adventure-based activities throughout the afternoon.

Children must be registered to attend a day that corresponds to their current grade level. Children should dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. Pre-registration is required and a limited number of spaces are available for each day’s session. Parents must provide a sack lunch for each child and complete the program  Release & Waiver Form to turn in at drop-off on the day of the program.

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.
