WIN A WEEK (FOR ONE CHILD)

AT LITTLE RAY’S ZOO CAMP IN OTTAWA!

I love animals. As a child, I wanted to be a veterinarian when I grew up (this is written in one of my old school books). I never did make it to “vet school”, however, my passion for animals remains the same. I especially love “critters”, animals that make many people a little (or a lot!) squeamish. I adore mice, rats, chinchillas, hedgehogs…and chameleons. In fact, the first real chameleon I ever saw was at one of my favourite zoos – Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo here in Ottawa, Canada. It was at Little Ray’s where I got to see a chameleon out of its cage and being hand fed. I found it fascinating to watch. Let me tell you, their tongues move at lightning speed!

If you have ever been to Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo, you’ll know that one of their regular features is their feeding shows. These feeding shows allow the audience to sit up close and personal with various creatures, learn a bit about them, and watch them being fed. I’ve seen Little Ray’s staff feed snakes, turtles, chameleons…and even alligators! To enhance the “animal experience”, Little Ray’s even encourages the audience members to touch (and sometimes hold!) the animals. This is where I (the arachnophobe ) got my first chance to hold a tarantula. This is one thing I thought I would NEVER do. You can read more about Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo in my previous blog about them here.

Did you know that Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo offers some fantastic programs and shows outside and away from their zoo? One of these programs is their Little Ray’s Zoo Camp. In 2013, Little Ray’s Zoo Camps are set to become their best camps ever. Kids attending the interactive camps will get a chance to learn about the care and maintenance of the animals, and so much more. They will even get to learn about the plants and animals that live in the forests around Ottawa. For those of you living in the Ottawa area, but living far from the Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo location, they have added a second camp in conjunction with Dovercourt Rec Centre and the Midway – centrally located in Westboro.

By the way, for those of you living in the Hamilton, Ontario region, you are in luck! Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo has just opened it’s newest zoo on June 8th in Hamilton. Be sure to visit them! They have an opening month special – $9.50 per person from June 8-July 15th.

The great folks at Little Ray’s have so generously offered up a fantastic prize for one lucky Canadian Blog House member – a whole week (for one child) at Little Ray’s Zoo Camp in Ottawa, valued at $240! What young child wouldn’t love to spend a week learning all about great creatures and having the chance to interact with them? This camp sounds pretty fantastic to me! I wonder if Little Ray’s would allow this “big kid” to sneak into the camp, lol. Many thanks to Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo for helping Canadian Blog House make one little Canadian very happy!

Please take note that this giveaway is not open to Québec residents.

    I used to love spending summer at the cottage with my Grandparents and cousins. We used to swim, bike, hike and just have a great time!

    Capture the flag was the greatest group camp game and we played it in a magical forest. Wish I could go back!

  3. Welcome to Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo and Reptiles For Kids! Since 1995, we have been offering one of Canada’s most fun and interactive approaches to eco education and zoology. The reptile zoo has the largest and most diverse animal education outreach program in Canada and has trained zookeepers and zoo facilities on site and off site since its inception. Our facility is one of a kind in the Ottawa area, and offers a series of dynamic school and daycare programs , children’s birthday parties , and hosting and bookings for corporate events and fair exhibition tours across Canada for more than 15 years.

    My favourite summer vacation was going to parc safari with the kids. We loved the animals and the fun rides afterwards.

  6. Britt Ostrander says:

    I loved going to Banook Canoe Club as a child, we spent our entire summer kayaking, canoeing and swimming!

  7. The most extensive reptile zoo and rescue facility in eastern Ontario, Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo is a grand hotel for cold-blooded critters overseen by animal enthusiasts Paul “Little Ray” Goulet and his wife Sheri Goulet. Born from the joy Little Ray experienced sharing his personal collection of reptiles with school children, the zoo now encompasses a variety of exhibits and daily feeding demonstrations showcasing more than 150 tenants. The Goulets’ expert staff—which has trained keepers at other animal facilities on proper husbandry and correct presentation—safely introduces visitors to the tenants which include 500-pound alligators, giant snakes, and monkeys. Each day corporate groups, birthday parties, and everyday animal lovers tour the reptile environs and educational displays. A recent large-scale renovation has increased public access to the building, putting in place improvements that include large private-function rooms, special animal exhibit spaces for attractions about animals of the rainforests, and a jungle spa where pythons receive hydrating wraps to combat scaly skin.
