Camp Zoo: Who Works at the Zoo? (Grades 7 & 8)

Do you think you’ve got what it takes to work at the Zoo? In this fast-paced, week-long session campers have a chance to learn the ins and outs of being a zookeeper.

From cleaning to feeding, training to behavioral enrichment, campers will experience the rewards and challenges of this most popular job at the Zoo. But we won’t stop there… at the Zoo there are LOTS of fun jobs to do. Campers interested in food, shopping, math, anatomy, writing, computers, education, marketing, and more, may find there’s a job at the Zoo that’s perfect for them.

Camp Zoo: Children will have fascinating adventures with the natural world this summer at Camp Zoo.

Each week-long session is filled with up-close animal encounters, behind-the-scenes experiences, hands-on activities, games, in-depth investigations and organized free time. During the mornings, we take advantage of the cooler temperatures and participate in outdoor activities such as water-play and hiking. In the afternoons, when the temperatures increase, more time is spent participating in indoor activities.

Full-day (8 a.m. – 3 p.m.) sessions, with the option to add Extended Day Camp (3 – 6 p.m.).
