Campers explore the Cincinnati Zoo during last year's spring break
Older campers will be able to take care of a goat for the entire week!
Campers will also get up-close-and-personal with other animals such as Caroline the Porcupine!
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
If you're spending spring break at home this year, there's plenty of fun for your children to have without leaving the Tri-state!
Inspired by the hit family film Dr. Doolittle, the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden is getting into spring break mode with the 2013 Dr. Zoolittle Camp. While your children may not be able to have one-on-one conversations with the critters, they will be able to learn about the wide world of wildlife while having a blast with their fellow campers!
The camp runs for three weeks between March 25 and April 12. Each camp lasts one week and will take place from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day.
Different camps are set up for different age groups:
Children ages 4-5 will participate in the All in the Family camp, teaching them what it means to be a family in the wildlife kingdom.
For ages 6-7, it's Troops, Groups and Herds. These kids will learn how animals survive in groups or individually within the jungle.
Ages 8-11 will be given the task of taking care of a real life goat for one week! They'll learn training techniques, how to feed the animals and responsibility when it comes to looking after an animal.
The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden promises a week's worth of fun for both you and your child this spring break season!
