Someday Soon We Will Visit the Air Zoo
My daughter’s school encouraged us to build a Someday Soon Jar to capture the activities we will enjoy once the COVID-19 quarantine is lifted. In addition to seeing family and friends, ranking high on our “someday soon” list is a visit to the Air Zoo.
With over 100 aircraft to explore, full-motion flight simulators and amusement park-style rides, it’s easy to see why this local treasure is so beloved.
The Air Zoo is a world-class, Smithsonian-affiliated aerospace and science museum. It is also a welcoming, family-friendly space that fosters imagination and learning.
And while its doors are temporarily shut, the Air Zoo is creating new ways to open connections with local families.
How You Can Connect Virtually with the Air Zoo through Learning, Virtual Camps and Shopping
Although you can’t visit them in person yet, the Air Zoo staff have been diligently creating new activities and experiences for Kalamazoo area families through its Launchpad to Learning, Virtual Summer Camps, and online Fly Buy Gift Shop:
- The Launchpad to Learning showcases engaging, educational videos including tours, stories, and STEAM activities.
- Summer may look different this year, but the Air Zoo is still hosting camps! This summer will be fun, innovative and VIRTUAL. Virtual camps are offered for PreK-12 grade and are scheduled for June 22 – August 28, 2020. Online registration opens May 15.
- The Fly Buy Gift Shop is a required stop for us whenever we visit. This store is packed with your favorite Air Zoo gear, including winged tiger stuffed animals and learning toys. This gift shop is now online, and we have your chance to WIN a $50 gift card!
