Be the first to enjoy Family Camp Roar 2014 at the Exotic Feline Rescue Center.
We are proud to announce this wonderful experience for families and friends: mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, guardians or any combination of these. At the rescue center, our friends are more like our family so that will work also.
$50 per camper
CAMP DATES: July 23, 2014.
Take part in a three-hour camp that will include learning about our resident lions, tigers, leopards, pumas, servals and bobcats along with many of the same educational activities that our Camp Roar campers enjoy. This might include a tour of the restricted area in a circus cage (adults will be required to ride in the circus cage), a scavenger hunt tour with learning stations, a simulated medical procedure on a stuffed animal lion, crafts and Big Cat games. You will have the opportunity to learn about our rescues and the day-to-day running of the center. One is never too old to enjoy a day of learning and sharing their love of animals with other animal lovers.
All children, ages six and older are welcome to attend with at least one adult. The accompanying adult will be responsible for their child for the entire camp experience.
Adults are expected to follow the same rules as the children and will be asked to leave if they do not.
