Como Zoo offers winter break camps

Como Zoo is offering one- and two-day camps for students in kindergarten to third grade over winter break. Camps are $60 for a one-day camp and $120 for a two-day camp. Hours are 9 a.m.-4 p.m., with extended care times available at $10 an hour. Children can either bring a lunch or you can order a box lunch for $7.

Polar Expedition will be held Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 22-23. This camp will explore the tundra and the animals that live there.

Bugmania will be held Friday, Dec. 26. Campers will participate in hands-on insect investigations, eat “buggy” treats and even bring some bugs home (but don’t worry; they won’t be real).

Big Cat Bash on Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 29-30, will explore the zoo’s cats and their habitats.

African Adventures will end the break on Friday, Jan. 2. Preregistration is required. Go to
