It’s a wild world, and one that needs leaders passionate about animals, the environment, and conservation! Campers will be empowered to become leaders in conservation through teambuilding and leadership activities, engagement in inquiry activities, games, encounters with wild animal ambassadors, visits to animal exhibits, outdoor exploration, and more. Each Conservation Heroes camper will receive a ZooCamp t-shirt, a chance to feed the goats in the Alex and Ani Farmyard, and a ZooCamp Access Pass.

Camp runs 8:30 am - 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday.

Please Note: This is not a travel camp. Campers may be registerd for a maximum of one session of each theme. Registrations beyond this maximum will be cancelled.
