Desert animals have incredible adaptations to thrive with high temperatures and limited water. In summer these really shine! Join us and discover desert creatures’ amazing adaptations, their relationships with plants and other animals, and the important roles they play in their habitats. We’ll visit different exhibits, meet live animals, examine bio-artifacts, make cool crafts, play in the Packrat Playhouse, and more as we explore a unique theme each day. Note: the Playhouse will be an exclusive experience for campers as other guests will not be admitted on camp days.

Monday, Day 1: Amazing Amphibians and Remarkable Reptiles
Wednesday, Day 2: Things with Wings
Friday, Day 3: Friends with Fur
