Presidents' Week Activities for Kids: Wildlife Adventures Mini Camp at the Queens Zoo

porcupine; queens zooKids have a lot to look forward to at the Queens Zoo this month, when the zoo hosts another session of its popular children's program, Wildlife Adventures Mini Camp. Kids ages 6-10 can learn about animal life, visit different animal groups, go on behind-the-scenes tours of zoo exhibits, watch live animal presentations, participate in arts and crafts, and much more. On the first day, it's "Marvelous Mammals;" "Life on the Farm" is on day two; then it's "Beautiful Birds," on the third and last day of the program.
