Zoo Explorer Camps
Interested in zoo careers? Join us for in-depth Zoo experiences, where participants learn about caring for and working with our amazing animals. More than your average camp, these programs give children the opportunity to delve deeper and see more than ever before.
The Zoo offers these unique two or three day camps at select times of the year, typically during spring, fall and winter breaks.
Wildlife Engineering (9-12 year-olds)
Dec. 28-29 • 9am to 4pm • $190 members/$215 non-members
Every animal is “engineered” for survival and success. How can you tell? Come and explore how animals are designed, what we can learn and copy from their designs, and how we create their exhibits here at the Zoo. Campers will discover how animals survive through animal investigations, behind-the-scenes tours, and hands-on activities.
