Theme: How animals survive in their environment
Join us for a week-long day camp exploring five questions about how animals survive in their natural habitats.
Monday: How do animals move?
Join us as we learn how different animals move and why there are different types of movement.
Tuesday: How do prey avoid predators?
Staying off the menu is a full day’s work. Learn about some of the ways prey species have learned to keep themselves from becoming a snack.
Wednesday: How do body temperatures work?
Ever wondered why humans need to wear jackets when it gets cold outside, or why reptiles aren’t found in the arctic and walrus’s aren’t found in the desert? The theme of the day is all about body temperatures and how animals control them.
Thursday: How do predators find prey?
Survival is a race run between prey and predators and for every trick the prey learns predators have to be just as clever. The topic of the day is all about learning the different ways that predators compete with their prey for survival.
Friday: How do Adaptations fit in a changing world?
Seasons changing in the Gobi Desert can mean winters as cold as -40°C in winter and as hot as 45°C in summer, but with climate change and human expansion survival can be even more challenging. Our last day of camp features some amazing adaptors to the changing world, and some that can use our help.
