The North Georgia Wildlife Park and Zoo is offering adjusted summer camps with COVID-19 safety precautions for children in grades 1-6, according to a news release.

Zoo Camp is a STEAM-oriented experience (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) that features hands-on activities with animals, science learning activities, hands-on engineering/building experiences, art projects and active play.

The zoo will host four summer camps during the month of June: June 1-4, June 8-11, June 15-18 and June 22-25. Each camp is limited to 10 children.

Kids can attend for the full day, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. which costs $100 per day. There are also two half-day options, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. or 1-4 p.m., that cost $50 per day.

According to the release, the camp will follow safety guidelines for COVID-19 including social distancing, limited group sizes, enhanced cleaning and disinfecting practices and temperature checks before each child is admitted.

The camp asks that parents do not bring children who are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive with COVID-19 in the last two weeks.

Reservations can be made on the zoo's website at northgeorgiazoo.com/zoo-day-camp.html
