Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL)â€™s Animal Adventure & Art STEAM Summer Camp will return starting Monday, June 1 for four week-long sessions for ages 6-14.
Camp includes STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) activities to teach campers about the scientific method of testing a hypothesis, critical thinking and cool animal facts while creating unique arts and crafts, participating in fun activities, scientific experiments and animal interactions. Plus, they will learn age-appropriate math skills that will help them as they learn what it takes to become a zookeeper.
â€œThis is a unique opportunity for young animal lovers to get up close and personal with exotic animals and learn all about what makes them special,â€ said Susan Logan, Director of Education at AAWL. â€œCampers learn how to make math, science and art fun while discovering how to care for their new fuzzy, fluffy and scaly friends.â€
AAWL will adhere to CDC guidelines regarding regular and routine surface disinfecting. All campers will have their temperature taken with a touch-free thermometer upon arrival at camp. Campers will wash their hands and use hand sanitizer multiple times throughout the day. Campers will be placed in age-based groups of 10 or fewer.
Camp is held Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the AAWL Education Center, 15 N. 40th Place, Phoenix. Registration is $315 per week. Camps run weekly throughout June. Additional camps will be offered in July. Registration for July classes begins June 15.
