2010 Brings Back Summer Camp for Kids
Flushing, N.Y., January 26 – The Wildlife Conservation Society’s Queens Zoo has announced it will
be bringing back its educational summer camp for kids this year. Although it’s

now back in full-swing and will teach children about the world of wildlife
through games, crafts and a variety of hands-on activities.
