What do we do?
With the coming of spring, there is an explosion of light and colours in nature, and also at the Zoo. We can watch the first flowers appear, which are part of the rich botanical life at the Zoo and we will learn about the important work that bees do, responsible for pollinizing flowers, and their contribution to the conservation and reproduction of plants.
We will also discover other spectacular invertebrates that are in nature, and we will welcome in all the mammals, birds and reptiles that have been born at the Zoo.
The boys and girls who participate in the camp will become the true ‘guardians of nature’ and will start working for the habitats and for the animals that live in nature. They will also learn about what the Zoo does to contribute to their conservation, and will spend a few splendid days with its animals and educators.
Every day will bring different surprises, with time to visit lots of places in the Zoo, see how the caretakers prepare the food for the animals and take care of them, and even help with some of these tasks, right next to the animals. And there is no lack of times for playing, games and crafts to take home a special souvenir of an unforgettable week, always accompanied by the Zoo educators, all of whom are professionals in the field of natural science and with a lot of experience in educational and leisure tasks, who are both responsible and a lot of fun!

What to bring!
Boys and girls should wear comfortable clothing suitable for the time of year. We recommend that they bring a change of clothes, a cap, and that sun protection is applied at home (although there are many shady places in the Zoo, they will not always be sheltered from the sun). In summer, they should bring a swim costume, sandals and a towel, as-–weather permitting—they can have a swim during break time.
Children should not bring valuable items like mobile phones, videogames, cameras, money, etc.
From around 10 to 10.30 am, we take a short break and, if you like, you can give your children a light snack for this time.
