Adventure Camp (Grades K-6)

Thursday, March 23, 2017

A partnership with the Flint Hills Discovery Center; offering full & half day Day Camps for youth grades K-6 when USD 383 is not in session.

Sunset Zoo and the Flint Hills Discovery Center have joined forces to provide an unique and enhanced experience for youth when USD 383 is not in session. Adventurers learn about the plants and animals from their own backyard to around the world. Youth also travel back in time, exploring the geology and fossils that make their home a special place.

Grade-Specific Camps & Locations
Two grade-specific camps offered in full and half day session; one for grades K-2 and another for grades 3-6. Camps regularly rotate locations between the Zoo and the Flint Hills Discovery Center; see below for a complete schedule with locations.

Times & Costs
  • Full Day (7:30am to 5:30pm): $25/camp ($22 for FOSZ/FHDC members)
  • Half Day (7:30am to Noon): $15/camp ($13 for FOSZ/FHDC members)
