Monday 25th April 2022 - Zurich Discovery Trail - on the lookout for dinosaurs, T-Rex, outdoor fun

Is your favourite dinosaur also T-Rex?

Today, is our welcome day! We get to know each other while playing a variety of fun games and singing songs about dinosaurs! We will go on an adventure trail around Zurich and be on the lookout for various dinosaurs. We will also find fountains, parks and playgrounds. 

Back at Academicus we will learn about T-Rex, read a book about T-Rex (or maybe T-Veg), make a T-Rex mask and a T-Rex puppet - because today is all about the famous Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Tuesday 26th April 2022 - Uetliberg Planet Trail  + the Velociraptor 

Planets, how dinosaurs disappeared, and a Velociraptor !

We will warm up in the morning with a dino dance and a song about planets, read a book about Velociraptor and head to Uetliberg for a sausage sizzle and the Planet Trail. Today we will find out what planet dinosaurs lived on and what made them disappear so suddenly.  We will have several asteroid shower fights and see who survives, if anybody:) Once back at Academicus we will finalise our Milky Way project and create a Velociraptor puppet.

Wednesday 27April 2022 - The Dinosaur Museum + Triceratops 

All our favourite dinosaurs with a focus on the Triceratops 

After an eventful morning of planet and dinosaur songs and games we will dig and excavate our own dinosaur bones and go to the famous Dinosaur museum. We will see real fossils, dinosaur bones with our own eyes, we will listen to the dinosaurs roar and shriek and we will join them in making some dino noises. We will visit some playgrounds and have some extra fun outdoors before coming back to Academicus for a book about the Triceratops and making our own dinosaur horns to also become a real Triceratops. So much fun while learning so much:)

After a morning of games, songs and fun, we will go on a trip to see the new museum focusTerra which shows how earthquakes are triggered and what makes volcanoes errupt, where gems come from and what fossils tell us about the origin of life. After returning to Academicus we will male our own volcanoes, read a book and build our own pterodactyl toys to take home.

A Treetop Walkway to see what the diplodocus saw!

Friday is our last extra fun day!

We are so lucky to have found you! I can say, you were born to make kids happy! They've made such great memories during the camp and for that I am deeply grateful! I must confess, I was sad today when I realised that the camp ended. Every afternoon, I was so excited to hear what kind of adventures they experienced! Hope we can see you as often as possible!
