Zoo Crew is a volunteer opportunity open to teens in 7th-12th grade. All Zoo Crew teen volunteers will learn important leadership & communication skills while being a part of a passionate team!
Teens joining the program in 2017 have the opportunity to begin as a Zoo Crew CIT (Counselor in Training), helping camp counselors keep campers safe and engaged in games, songs, crafts, and more.
After the first summer of Zoo Crew, all Zoo Crew members can apply to be a Junior Keeper and work alongside our animal keepers (please note that this has limited availability). Once the busy season winds down, Zoo Crew members can still participate in activities such as volunteering for special events, service projects and field trips throughout the year.
If you have questions about any of these opportunities, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or at (401) 785-3510 x356.
Zoo Crew CIT: Now accepting applications for the 2017 season.
Zoo Crew Jr. Docents: Please check back in December 2016 for more information about our Zoo Crew Jr. Docent Program.
Zoo Crew CIT (Counselor-in-Training)
CITs are teen volunteers within our Zoo Crew program. CITs will assist in the ZooCamp experience and help maintain a safe, fun environment for campers (ages 4-10) by encouraging participation, modeling ZooCamp expectations and assisting campers with skills during activities or crafts; CITs will be supervised by ZooCamp staff while working as part of the ZooCamp team, and will gain extensive experience in the organization of camp programs, teamwork, public speaking, and group management.
CITs must be able to commit for at least four (4) weeks of summer ZooCamp, plus one week of either Winter (2/20-2/24) or Spring (4/17-4/21) ZooCamp as a working interview.
**If you are unavailable for BOTH Winter and Spring Camp, please contact the ZooCamp Director by phone at 401-785-3510 x394 by September 15 for more information about a possible Fall option.**
