How does a summer of expeditions, thrilling live animal interactions, Extreme Theater movies, interactive exhibits, hiking, science experiments, games, crafts and MORE sound to your child?
Mile High Mamas is partnering with the Wildlife Experience in Parker, Colo to offer you an exclusive discount on their weekly summer half-day camps for kids ages 5-7 that run from June 2-August 8, 2014.
With so many summer camps for kids out there, why choose the Wildlife Experience? Their camps are not only fully licensed and have the highest safety rating but they offer three different themes so kids can pick the camp session they are most passionate about! All nature camps are not only about learning but getting physical with plenty of games to make it fun. Each day always starts off with yoga, then activities, going outside for a snack, free time to play and even a 3D movie in the Xtreme screen theater.
Plus, the half-day camps are from 9 a.m.-noon, giving you a much-needed break while they keep learning and playing all summer long!
The session choices include:
Campers will explore the secret lives of ants, spiders, worms, grasshoppers, crickets and other creepy crawly critters. Through hands-on activities and live animal encounters, campers will become young scientists – discovering where these animals live in nature, what they like to eat, how they move, and how each animal is important for a healthy ecosystem. They will meet resident tarantuals, learn about how spiders weave their webs and catch their prey. Your little scientists will even perform an ant experiment and will make a hypothesis of how many ants eat different foods placed before them. Was their choice related to color, food, texture, etc.? Campers will collect and learn the difference between grasshoppers and crickets and even dedicate an entire day unto worms–how they move, react to life. And you can’t miss the always-fun cockroach races. Using the scientific method, kids will figure out which cockroaches will win on the obstacle course.
Delving into the animal kingdom, campers learn about types of animals that have backbones. What is the difference between a reptile and amphibian? Haven’t you always been curious about penguins and the wonders of the Arctic? There will be exciting owl pellet dissections, vertebrate relay races and live animal demonstrations as campers discover the world of fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.
In Denver, we are surrounded by fascinating animals that often get overlooked. Guaranteed, Urban Animals Rediscovered will help your kids see the world around them through different eyes. From bats, bees and coyotes to prairie dogs, kids will create bug motels and mini-meadows and learn how to create a habitat for wildlife viewing and exploration. Nature’s Educators will bring life animal demonstrations including raptors, golden eagles, owls and hawks. During weeks 1 and 3, the Cottontail Rabbit Rescue will share the work they do for the injured and abandoned rabbits and talk about rehabilitation. Not only does this great session expose kids to animals but also opens up many career opportunities for the future.
What Denver parents are saying
“Jasper had an amazing two weeks of wildlife camp. The staff was amazing and he came home each day with new information about what he had learned. It was a wonderful combination of learning and playing. Honestly, I would have registered him for more weeks if there were additional programs available. He is already looking forward to next summer. We live in Denver and it is a bit of a drive for us to get there, especially during rush hour, but your program was well worth it. I was happy that the group size was small, but I’m thinking that will change once word gets out about how wonderful your camp is. Thank you so much!”
“My child’s favorite part of the camp was seeing cool ‘insider’ stuff at the museum such as feeding the coral reef fish and the live animal visits each day.
