ASHEBORO — The N.C. Zoo announced they will be offering several virtual summer camp programs for kids as the COVID-19 pandemic persists.
In a news release, the zoo described their new Zoo's Virtual Summer Camps as a way for kids to learn about animals and their natural environment in a new way.
During virtual camp, kids will participate in activities traditionally found in the zoo's camps, just in a virtual setting, the zoo said. Crafts, animal- ambassador encounters, behind the scenes with keepers and games are all part of the learning experience.
The zoo said the programs are designed for rising first- through sixth-graders. Each camp is three hours long and has a morning or afternoon option.
- Jr. Herpetologists, $30.
