Tracy Aviary Fall Break Camps
October 17th-19th 2012
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.
A Migration Vacation
October 17th, 2012
As the days get shorter, some of our native Great Salt Lake birds decide to take a trip to better food and warmer weather— a migration vacation! Campers will spend the first half of camp exploring how our wetland birds make their impressive journeys each year, and the second half of the day delving into and celebrating the tropics that await them in Central and South America. 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 and tropical friends up close and personal.
Bird Boot Camp
October 18th, 2012
When the going gets tough, the tough… stay right here in Utah! While some birds are busy migrating to warmer weather, others are preparing for the cold, hard winter right in our backyards. In this camp, campers will learn the tricks and tools of birds who stick around even when it’s snowing and how we can help the birds who enjoy winter right alongside us through games, crafts, and of course the birds themselves.
Care of Magical Avian Creatures
October 19th, 2012
When it comes to magical creatures, birds can be some of the best around! Join us in camp to learn about some of the world’s most impressive magical and mythical birds…and how to take care of them! From phoenixes to rocs, scarecrows to wizard’s owls, every camper will find a creature and its real-life bird counterpart to fall in love with as we play, create, and discover in the company of some of our favorite Aviary birds.
