Nature Ranger Camp opens for Spring Break

March 16, 2012 by  

From Monday, March 26th until Friday, March 30, 2012, a “Spring Break Nature Ranger Camp” is being hosted by the Oregon Zoo Amphitheater, a few miles from Beaverton, located at 4001 SW Canyon Road in Portland Oregon. This event runs from 9am to 4pm.

The Spring Break Nature Ranger Camp provides children between Kindergarten and Grade four the opportunity to go out and explore what nature has to offer. This is a living laboratory program within the Oregon zoo with the children learning about the wildlife that cohabitates in their area. This living laboratory is being hosted in the various designated green areas within the zoos property and will consist of an assortment of activities. The children will learn all about how to track animals while hiking, the terrain where the wildlife can be found, and how to count birds and the importance of recording how many are in the location. Part of this event includes guided discovery tours around the zoo, some art projects, games, and a visit to the pet and touch area.

As part of the program, children will be provided with nutritional snacks and an early care program is in place for children who need to arrive earlier. Early care from 8am to 9am cost $5.00 per day and late care from 4pm to 6pm costs $10.00 per day. Print companies appear to have the tickets ready, as they are now for sale and they are selling quickly. For zoo members this event cost $33.00 per person per day and for non-zoo members this event costs $38.00 per person per day. If you would like your child to have a hot lunch each day, the price is $7.00 per day.
