How does Zoom-A-Zoo Virtual Camps Work?

ZOOm on over and we’ll take an adventure together right from your home.

  • 3 hours of live interaction with keepers and educators throughout the zoo.
  • Zoom will be used as the platform for camp sessions.
  • Computer and internet accesses required.
  • Just like camp, you will check in your child by logging in each morning.
  • Interactive crafts and activities with educators and campers.  Templates, worksheets, activities and instructions will be downloadable.
  • Daily schedule will be provided for parents and campers.
  • Afternoon extension activities will be available for campers and families to connect with camp themes and nature.

 

Are there supplies or materials needed?

Please see individual camp above for suggested material list and any additional needs.

Does my child have to participate the entire time?

No. 🙂

Our camp counselors will engage with campers through Zoom, but we understand that campers will get up and move around, leave and come back, etc. We have build in times for short breaks with engagement opportunities for those who wish to stay.  Parents will get a daily outline so those “movers and shakers” won’t miss out on things they may be looking forward too.

My home has a lot going on. How will my child stay focused?

No worries. Here are our suggestions…..

  • Headphones
  • Quiet area
  • Zoom platform allows us to be interactive with your camper and enables us to mute and un-mute for participation. So if the dog is barking in the background done worry it wont be distracting to all participants
  • We have a lot packed into this live 3 hour experience. Having not done this before we will be making constant adjustments to keep campers engaged. However, parental guidance, participation, and preparation are encouraged. So join us with your camper for a highlight animal talk to brighten your day.
What does Household mean?

The whole family is invited! Event the family pet.
