NORFOLK - Need something for your children to do during spring break? They can get the ultimate camp experience with the Norfolk Camp Sampler.
The Virginia Zoo, Norfolk Botanical Garden, d'ART Center, Nauticus and Old Dominion University are joining forces for the April 1-5 camp.
Children, ages 5-8, will be able to learn about animals, nature, art, aquatics and more during the five-day, five camp session. Each day will be devoted to a specific adventure: painting at the d'ART Center, walking on the Wisconsin at Nauticus, exploring World of Wonders: A Children's Adventure Garden at the Norfolk Botanical Garden, climbing a rock wall at Old Dominion University and experiencing a close animal encounter at the Virginia Zoo.
Officials say it this cam will help parents answer the question "What would my child like to spend a week doing this summer?"
The Norfolk Camp Sampler is $200 for the week and meets 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, at a different attraction each day. Children ages 5 to 8 from across Hampton Roads are encouraged to participate.
The deadline to enroll is March 20, 2013, though available spaces may fill sooner.
