Happy summer, explorers! Today marks day one of Summer Zoo Camp. The Fort Worth Zoo’s summer camp includes nine weeks of exciting themed adventures for children age 3 to sixth grade, featuring crafts and other wild activities, new technology, animal visitors, and of course, visits inside the Zoo.
This summer I’m getting involved in the fun by providing a trivia question for each week of camp. The trivia question will be posted every Monday. Campers will have the rest of the week to find the answer, and those who answer the question correctly by leaving a comment will receive a prize on the last day of their camp session.
You don’t have to be a camper to chime in, though! I invite all my fellow explorers to give their brains a weekly boost with my trivia questions. Have fun!
