Phoenix Zoo: Summer Camp Zoo – Conservation Designers

Grades 5 & 6: Conservation Designers

Did you know there are animals at the Zoo that guests don’t get to see? Join us this week as we explore the Phoenix Zoo’s work in conserving species native to Arizona. Campers will learn all about conservation projects at the Zoo, and then design a conservation plan for a local species of their choice!

June 17 – 21

This year’s camp is all about finding out what it takes to creatively care for animals. Campers will explore habitats, learn how animals survive and thrive, and learn about the many ways zoos create habitats and care for animals.

All campers will meet animals up-close, play in our splash pads, and have opportunities to collaborate with other campers through different activities each day. Campers will also tackle design challenges related to their theme, incorporating STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) principles and going through the design process. They’ll use what they learn about the animals to create real-world solutions and top off the week presenting their design.

Due to high temperatures in the summer, at least half of the camp day is spent indoors, with opportunities to expand indoor time as temperatures rise.
