A little earlier today we told you about the Oklahoma Aquarium hosting day camps for kids put out by the weather. For those of you who don’t live in the Tulsa area, here’s a kid-friendly, animal-friendly day for you:
It’s warm and toasty inside the Oklahoma City Zoo’s Conservation Education Center and starting at 8:00 am Friday, January 8th, it’s also a quick solution for working parents whose kids are out of school due to the severe cold. A special Cold Weather Safari Camp will be held for a cost of only $20 per child. Pick-up is available till 5:30 pm and early drop-off begins at 7:30 am. This fee is discounted over 50% from our regularly scheduled day camps as a community service during this after-holiday, unexpected cold weather snap. This means parents can make it to work in a timely manner and have a safe, fun, educational place for their children for $3 or less per hour. Age appropriate activities may include live animal encounters, crafts, stories, songs, discovery stations and much more! Children are asked to bring a sack lunch. A morning and afternoon snack will be provided. Call ahead registration is recommended, but not required. Attendance is limited to the first 100 children between the ages of 4 and 15. Call (405) 425-0218 for registration or information.
