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.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it: uncover the secret strategies animals employ to keep themselves safe from danger. Don your capes as we explore defense mechanisms found throughout the Zooniverse with zoo hikes, hands-on activities, and up-close animal encounters. 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.
