Summer Camp




Does your child love nature and animals? Don’t hesitate: the Ecomuseum Zoo summer Nature Camp is a whole week of unforgettable adventures with the flora and fauna of Québec.

It’s also hundreds of diner table conversation topics, dozens of adventures to tell friends when school’s back in and too many discoveries to count!

Each year new, exciting and enriching activities await our young campers aged 6 to 11 years of age.

  • Prepare special enrichments for various animals, including the Black Bears, the Gray Wolves, or the turtles ;
  • Discover real techniques used by scientists to protect animals in the wild;
  • Discover a forest ecosystem and everything hidden within;
  • And many more unexpected surprises !
