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, a trip to 2016’s special exhibit “Birds from Down Under,” and a ZooCamp Access Pass.

Camp runs 8:30 am - 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday.
Please Note: This is not a travel camp.

EVEN WEEKS: Dirty Jobs
The world of conservation is full of dirty jobs, but it’s also full of passionate people willing to do them in order to accomplish amazing things for our environment, communities and animals. These Conservation Heroes are active everywhere, from the far side of the globe to right here in our back yard! We’ll learn about champions of local conservation, animal welfare, climate change and more … and maybe get a little dirty in the process.
