Zooper Heroes Camp: Defenders of the Zooniverse
This is a day camp offered to children with special needs. Campers will meet animals in the classroom, visit exhibits throughout the Zoo, make crafts, and play games to connect information discussed in the classroom with the animal kingdom.
Comic book heroes are not the only ones with superpowers! Don your imaginary capes as we explore defense mechanisms found throughout the Zooniverse. Quills, claws, and camouflage are no match for these predator villains!
Nashville Zoo has been working with Vanderbilt Kennedy Center's Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders (TRIAD) to form the structure of the camp. Supports will be included for campers throughout the day such as a visual schedule, visual supports, first/then boards, quiet areas, and choice boards.
