JACKSON – Six Flags Wild Safari’s Animal Adventure Camp is a week-long program that allows children ages 5 to 13 to experience animals up close. Through classroom instruction, guest speakers and interactive activities within the safari and theme park, campers learn about and care for a variety of exotic animals, as well as the importance of conservation. In its fourth year, Animal Adventure Camp continues to expand and will provide more than 250 children with the experience of a lifetime.
Dave Peranteau, supervisor of animal education at Six Flags, describes the camp as “unique in that campers and animals interact each day. Kids who love animals and science experience a range of activities that can’t be duplicated anywhere else. All of our activities are focused on making learning fun.”
Children are introduced to many animals, including giraffes, elephants, rhinos, rabbits, pigs, reptiles and snakes through private animal tours, command performances of the park’s educational and fun animal shows, and daily care of the Base Camp’s small residents. Camp counselors, in conjunction with the park’s animal experts, provide instruction, play animal-related games and make crafts and while devoting personalized attention to each child. There are nine week-long sessions from June 25 to Aug. 24. The action-packed camp week culminates with a graduation ceremony open to each camper’s family.
- Full day camp runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is $499.99 per week. Campers must supply their own lunch.
- Half day camp runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is $299.99 per week.
