Spring Break Camp

March 25-29, 2019

Single, Full-Day Camps Available

Tracy Aviary offers camps for two age groups: 1st-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.

NEW for 2019! We’re partnering with Play-Well TEKnologies 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! Drop-off and pick-up are both at Tracy Aviary.

Camp Menu

Take Wing Into Spring
Monday, March 25
Take flight on a migratory journey with Tracy Aviary, just like the millions of birds that visit Utah each year. Campers will explore what surprises await birds during their thousand-mile journeys between North and South America and find out just why they go so far!

Tweet ’n’ Shout
Tuesday, March 26
Sing, squawk, caw, and tweet your heart out in a camp all about birds and the phenomenal noises they make. We will follow birds’ lead as we learn bird songs, make musical instruments, and discover how birds make themselves heard during one of the busiest and noisiest of seasons—spring!

Delightful Displays and Nifty Nests
Wednesday, March 27
Dancing, constructing, flying, and creating families—spring is a busy time for birds. We will get busy right along with them, exploring incredible bird behaviors! Campers will invent their own dances, build nests, and design their own wings to help them soar through a day of discovery and fun.

Bringing Up Birdy
Thursday, March 28
Whether you’re a human or a bird, being a parent is hard work! In this camp, we will learn how amazing bird parents handle this huge responsibility, see if we have what it takes to care for chicks through imaginative games, and find out how Tracy Aviary keepers set up our bird parents for success.

Fantastic Feathered Friends
Friday, March 29
Everyone can use a friend sometimes! Birds are fantastic friends to us, doing very important jobs in our environment, and we can be good friends right back with easy everyday actions. With birds that provide everything from pest control to carrion clean-up, your camper is sure to make a new friend!
