• Camper/Parent Events

  • Family Nature Club at the Turtle Back Zoo

    We’re thrilled to offer an exciting opportunity for you and your families! Come out and explore the natural areas surrounding the Turtle Back Zoo for an afternoon of nature play and learning about our own local animals. Each weekend will feature a different theme, a chance to meet a resident zoo animal, a light snack, and free time to spend outside with fellow LifeCamp families. We will perform science experiments, play games, make crafts, and everything in between throughout the year!

    Start times vary – please see below. The program lasts 1-1.5 hours but you’re more than welcome to spend as much time as you like at the park or playground. Please register below for a Saturday orSunday on either weekend, or both weekends! Advance registration is required to attend.

    Dates Available:

    Bus 73 leaves from Newark Penn Station and stops right in front of the zoo. We’ll be sending directional details a few days in advance of each event. Transportation assistance is limited but available upon request. We look forward to seeing you soon!
