Inspired by our awesome summer camp curricula & designed to give budding young herpetologists (between the ages of 9 & 12) a chance to learn about reptiles & PHS while on Winter Breaks from school, PHS now offers full day camps!  Each day camp begins promptly at 9 am, with check-in starting at 8:45 am, and ends with check-out at 4:00 pm. 


December 22, 2020: Reptile Day Camp 

December 23, 2020: Snake Day Camp 

December 30, 2020: Lizard Day Camp 



Each day camp focuses on a specific group of animals and includes physical activity and art, math, science, & technology orientated activities.  They will also participate in animal care, have special animal interactions, and increase their social awareness & sense of responsibility through conservation discussions and helping the reptiles that call PHS home. 

There is also an option of before care, starting at 8:00 am, and after care, ending at 5:00 pm. 

To register, visit our calendar or email the PHS Director of Outreach, Katelyn Garcia, at

Cost is $75 per day, with a $10 discount on multiple days.  For example, if your child signs up for one day of Lizard Day Camp, your total would be $75.  However, if your child signs up for Lizard Day Camp & Croc Day Camp (2 day camps), that would be a total of $140 ($75 Lizard Day plus $65 Croc Day).  Finally, if your child signs up for 3 day camps, your total would be $205 ($75 + $65 + $65) and so on.

Each child needs to bring his/her own lunch.  PHS will provide water as well as morning and afternoon snacks. 

Each day camp has a minimum requirement of 5 participants and maximum of 10 participants.
