Week 8 campers have fun learning about animal adaptations
At SPREE’s Adventures Outside Summer Day Camps, we spent the week learning about the incredible talents of the animals of Colorado. We dressed up like a hawk to learn about the strong talons and hooked upper beak of this amazing predator. We got to feel a squirrel pelt when we learned about prey and how they survive in the wild. We even made camouflage costumes for a game of hide and seek.
We completed a relay race and added t-shirts for our layers of fat, representing how bears store fat for winter. We also played a monarch migration game, had a crawdad pincer relay, and made beaver dams to get a hands-on look at amazing animal adaptations all around us.
For many campers, the highlight of the week was learning about animals from our friends at the Denver Zoo. We got to meet amazing creatures including an African pancake tortoise and hognose snake.
We held our graduation ceremony to close out another great week!
