Kids Learn First Hand How To Care For Animals At The Great Lakes Aquarium
DULUTH, Minn. – The Great Lakes Aquarium offered a two day camp to help kids learn what it takes to care for the animals.
A handful of campers aged eight to eleven received a behind scenes experience.
The kids helped prepare meals for the animals.
They even had the chance to feed a few baby alligators.
The program coordinator says camps like this one can be a very valuble way to spark a child’s interest in animals.
“It’s a really great experience in case that is a future career path for them, but also to build empathy to create that connection to animals.”
The Great Lakes Aquarium will host another interactive camp for kids in February.
