Turtle Island Summer Camp

Turtle Island (Ages 5-12): Can you hear the drums? Thump, thump, thump. Each drum beat represents mother earth’s heartbeat. Ancient tribes believed earth was carried on the back of a turtle. Join us for a week of adventure where campers dip into the rich local Native American history and the culture’s deep ties to the animal kingdom with tracking, primitive technology, art creations, shelter building & more! When school is out Chehaw is the place to be. Each day of camp includes a trip to the zoo, animal encounters, crafts, games, activities, a snack, a Chehaw water bottle, and a cool camp T-shirt! Children will have fun while learning through hands-on activities. Full Day sessions are from 9a- 3p. Half day sessions are from 9a- 12p and open to campers age 4. Need a late pick up? After camp care is available until 6 pm for $10 per day or $40 for the entire week. Members receive 10% off each camp plus half price on after camp care. Save big on any camp session, register one camper for 4 camper sessions and receive $50 in savings. Team Chehaw is committed to the safety of our campers, staff, and zoological collection. We are using the CDC Summer Camp Guidelines and AZA COVID-19 Zoological Guidelines.
