Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL)’s Animal Adventure & Art STEAM Summer Camp will return starting Monday, June 1 for four week-long sessions for ages 6-14.
Camp includes STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) activities to teach campers about the scientific method of testing a hypothesis, critical thinking and cool animal facts while creating unique arts and crafts, participating in fun activities, scientific experiments and animal interactions. Plus, they will learn age-appropriate math skills that will help them as they learn what it takes to become a zookeeper.
“This is a unique opportunity for young animal lovers to get up close and personal with exotic animals and learn all about what makes them special,” said Susan Logan, Director of Education at AAWL. “Campers learn how to make math, science and art fun while discovering how to care for their new fuzzy, fluffy and scaly friends.”
AAWL will adhere to CDC guidelines regarding regular and routine surface disinfecting. All campers will have their temperature taken with a touch-free thermometer upon arrival at camp. Campers will wash their hands and use hand sanitizer multiple times throughout the day. Campers will be placed in age-based groups of 10 or fewer.
Camp is held Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the AAWL Education Center, 15 N. 40th Place, Phoenix. Registration is $315 per week. Camps run weekly throughout June. Additional camps will be offered in July. Registration for July classes begins June 15.
