Ever wonder what it’s like to work at the Zoo?

Campers will come behind the scenes with us as we explore a week in the life of caring for our many animals!

Through science experiments, games, hikes throughout our trails and up-close animal encounters, campers will get to learn all about the various jobs at our Zoo, and how our work with the animals goes beyond Zoo grounds and into conservation projects around the world!

Every grade will get the opportunity to explore a unique role at the Zoo that will take them on backstage tours and to places you don’t get to see on a typical Zoo day!
