Starting this Fall, back by popular demand, we are bringing back our pandemic pods. What exactly is a Pandemic Pod? A Pod is a group of friends that you feel comfortable with during these uncertain and dangerous covid times. A group of friends that you KNOW, have been with throughout the pandemic, and you deem safe to interact with. Put together a group, a POD, of kids and parents, that can safely interact together at Eco Adventures. You can meet once a week, twice a week, or as many times as you wish, for your kids’ enrichment and enjoyment/learning experience. What a way to get a group of youngsters together to satisfy that vital social interaction their young lives need, while you have the peace of mind knowing that your entire pod is a familiar and safe group. Eco Adventures stringently follows all local and state-mandated guidelines surrounding the virus. In addition, all of our instructors have been vaccinated, providing a safe educational experience for your entire group. Each Pod session will be for 1.5 hrs and include live animal interactions each time and may include, crafts/experiments, games, fossil dig, and open playtime in our award-winning rainforest setting.

This in-depth experience is for the older students who are serious about learning animal husbandry and medical care of animals. Students will tour the facility and learn specific information and needs of our special animal collection. Students will get to not only encounter animals in our behind the scenes animal room, but assist with animal care, food prep, training, & cleaning. This is a very hands-on experience like no other, with interactions with numerous endangered species! Whoever gets to interact with an endangered species in this day and age? YOU DO, in this extremely elite camp, the ultimate insider experience.
