Tracy Aviary Fall Break Camps

Before and After Care programs available

Have a hoot with us this fall during our full day Tracy Aviary Fall Break Camps! Each camp welcomes children in 1st through 4th grade and runs one full day from 9 am to 4 pm. Our camps explore different autumnal themes through crafts, games and up-close, personal experiences with Tracy Aviary’s most charismatic birds, providing your child with an exciting day investigating birds and the natural world. Since each day is different, you are free to choose the camps that appeal to you and your child’s interests. Our Fall Break Camps are sure to engage, entertain and educate your child.

Sweet Treats and Tweets- FULL
October 16th, 2013

Whether you stick around for winter or high-tail it south to where the weather is warm, if you’re a bird you are still thinking about one thing… your treats! In this day of camp, your child will explore the colorful costumes and kooky customs of birds that brave the elements to ensure a good meal, with an emphasis on art and our innate creativity. We will learn about birds at home, as well as celebrations awaiting some of our traveling feathered friends in South America and wrap up the day with a Fall Festival of our own.

Eat, Screech, and Be Scary- FULL
October 17th, 2013

Of all of the birds out there, vultures, owls, and crows seem the scariest– but are they really so frightening? In this camp we will get to know some spooky birds up-close and personal. Your child will discover what their new feathered friends are doing during autumn, how they survive wintertime and if they are really as mysterious as we think they are.

A Migration Vacation
October 18th, 2013

As the days get shorter, some of our native Great Salt Lake birds decide to take an international trip—a migration vacation! Campers will spend the first half of camp exploring how our wetland birds survive in their watery environments and why wetlands are vital to all living things, and the second half of the day delving into how these amazing birds make their impressive journeys each year. We will explore why wetlands are so important to migratory birds, go on a migration of our own, and best of all meet some of our migrators friends up close and personal.
