Tracy Aviary Spring Break Camps

March 21-25, 2016

Single, Full-day Camps Available

Tracy Aviary offers camps for two age groups: 1st-3rd grade and 4th-5th grade. Each camp runs one full day from 9am to 4pm. See the calendar below for daily themes.

Our camps explore different springtime themes through crafts, activities, and most importantly nose-to-beak experiences with Tracy Aviary’s feathered friends. Because each day is different, you are free to choose the camps that appeal to you and your child’s interests.

A Mess of Nests

4th-5th Grade: Tuesday, March 22

Whether it’s a meaty meal or a fruity feast, we will uncover all the mysteries of how birds get their food and what exactly they’re eating. Be prepared to test your food-finding skills with games, crafts, and snacks that are beak-lickin’ good.

Break Out of Your Shell
