3rd-5th grade campers spent their day at Van Saun Park. Thank you to @bergencountyzoo for letting us explore and giving us an animal presentation! Their favorite exhibit was seeing the axolotl! We ended the day with a zoo scavenger hunt and some outdoor play in the park. #tenaflynaturecenter #tenaflynj #bergencountynj #bergencountyzoo #vansaunpark #summer #outdoors #naturecamp #camp #daycamp #explorers #animals @ Bergen County Zoo
