The One And Only Ivan Summer Camp | Kids Out and About Buffalo

The One And Only Ivan Summer Camp

The beloved novel “The One and Only Ivan” comes to the big screen this summer! Campers will enjoy a week getting to know Ivan the Gorilla, Stell and Ruby the elephants, Bob the dog and Snickers the poodle. We will explore Ivan’s story and his path to freedom and happiness. Each day, we will complete a STEAM challenge or activity, using the text to create a model of Ivan’s domain and habitat, build a nest and make a carousel.

This camp is perfect for the little zoologist who loves to be creative!
