Winter Break Day Camp
Time: 9:00am-4:00pm
If you’ve taken our camps before, this year will be a little different! With the holiday in the middle of the week this year, we are offering single day enrollment for our holiday camps. Join us each day for winter-themed educational games, crafts, and activities. As always, we’ll be sure to spend time on zoo tours and meeting live animals. We will also spend time in the park watching puppet shows, playing at Redwood Lookout, and sampling the rides as weather permits.
