Honolulu Zoo offering various group camps this summer

The Honolulu Zoo has three different age group camps to choose from this summer.

Camp Menehune is for 4 to 5-year-old kids that gives the little ones a break from their standard Daycare. The Menehune Day Camp immerses kids in a hands-on environment where your child’s curiosity will fuel his or her learning experience. Modeled after Camp ʻImi Loa, but designed for preschool children! Participants will be led on educational animal tours, visit select animal exhibits for an exclusive experience, and create animal themed crafts appropriate for their age group.

Camp Imi Loa is for 6 to 8-year-olds. This popular school break program is ideal for elementary-aged students interested in animals, the environment, and the Zoo. Participants will be led on educational animal tours, have the opportunity for exclusive animal enrichment/encounter activities, and have all program aspects reinforced with classroom lessons and discussions. Crafts, animal-themed lawn games, and educational videos will round out this truly unique experience!

Camp Wildlife Koa is for the bigger youngsters age 9 to 11. In the camp Wildlife Koas will discover through research and scientific inquiry some of the natural and human-made causes of animal endangerment and learn what they can do to help. We’ll meet threatened and endangered species from around the world, while starting our own wildlife conservation project. There will be opportunities for animal enrichment/encounter activities, crafts, animal-themed lawn games, and multi-media presentations to round out this truly unique experience.

The camp times are from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and the price depends on whether you are a member of the Zoo Society.
