Spring Break Camp

March 23-27, 2020

Single, Full-day Camps Available

Tracy Aviary offers camps for two age groups: Kindergarten-2nd grade and 3rd-5th grade. Each camp runs one full day from 9am to 4pm. 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.

Back for 2020! We’re partnering with Play-Well TEKnologies again to take our Spring Break Camps to a whole new level of fun! Campers will spend half of each day exploring Tracy Aviary and the other half getting hands-on with LEGO!

A Mess of Nests
Monday, March 23

They weave, they burrow, they collect, they construct. From fashioning with feathers to molding with mud, birds are skilled artists at creating a safe haven for their little ones. Join us as we study the nests of our Aviary residents and then build our own creations, both bird and kid-sized!

Break Out of Your Shell
Tuesday, March 24

Spring is all about eggs, with their spots, dots, flecks, and specks! Join us as we check out how birds raise their chicks from eggs to fledglings leaving the nest. We’ll observe real, live bird parents in action and get to test our own egg-tending skills with games, adventures, and up-close encounters with new bird friends.

Fowl Food Fiesta
Wednesday, March 25

Worms and berries and algae—oh my! 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 bird food-finding skills and your taste buds with games, crafts, and kid-friendly snacks that are beak-lickin’ good.

High Flying Colors
Thursday, March 26

Join us this spring as we search for the blue of a cuckoo’s egg, the red of a house finch, and the rainbow of a toucan’s beak in this art-focused camp. We will explore what color really means for birds through creative crafts, yummy snacks, and new friends, human and feathered alike. 

Native Neighbors
Friday, March 27

Spring is a time for new beginnings, from bright blossoms to chirping chicks. Come learn how to attract new friends to your backyard and how to tell what they are once you see them! In this camp we will make bird feeders, play exciting games, and discover birds that live among us right here in Utah.
