Some children at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo Winter Break Camp have a great chance of getting an "A" when they write their "What I did for Winter Break" essays.

The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo has Winter Break Camps for children ages 4 to 10. Director of Adventure Programs Stacey Graham confirms that these camps are animal-centric. Everything taught during a half- or full-day camp is animal themed and includes getting to touch the animals.

Graham said one morning activity wasn't planned but was definitely a moment to remember for the kids. "A moose shed one of his antlers. Each antler weighs 30-40 pounds. The children got to hold the antler and it was pretty fresh, right off the moose. Seeing their faces light up when they held that kind of thing, which is kind of gross but cool, too."

Cost is based on if you are Cheyenne Mountain Zoo member.

The last Winter Break Camp experience for 2016 is Dec. 30. Additional Zoo experience camps are planned throughout the year for different age groups.
