Spring Safari Schedule 2020

Call of the Wild

Kindergarten-1st | Crocodiles and Okapis

Camp Description

Denver Zoo has some pretty amazing habitats, but even animals can sometimes use a little home improvement! Can your camper become an exhibit designer by constructing some unique solutions to help our residents?

Day Overview

**Schedule Subject to Change

Question of the Day

AM: How can we ask our elephants to “play nice” when they get riled playing together? PM: How is this the same or different from other zoo animals?

Zoo Exploration

Toyota Elephant Passage. What did we see? How do the elephants share space? Why might they get riled up?

Animal Experience

What animal(s) did we meet in our classroom? Why did we meet the ones we did?

Engineering Challenge

What solutions did we come up with for asking our elephants to “play nice”? How do these solutions work?

Further Exploration

What areas of the zoo did we explore in the afternoon? How did this help us better understand/apply the Question of the Day?

Taking It Home

Do animals at home or school need reminders to “play nice”? How are you asked to “play nice” with friends or siblings?


  • Please review IMPORTANT INFORMATION, as well as our Policies and Procedures, to ensure you and your child are ready for camp.
  • Campers must bring a lunch, water bottle, and dress for the weather (plus lots of walking!). As most animal exhibits are outside, we WILL go outside every day.
  • A photo ID is required every day at pick up. Please notify the staff ahead of time if someone who is not on the authorized pick-up list will be picking up your child.
  • To contact us during the day, add authorized pick-ups, or to arrange a late arrival/early pick-up, call the Guest Care Center at 720-337-1400.
