ZooCamp Conservation Heroes

ZooCamp Conservation Heroes

Conservation Heroes  (ages 11-14)

Members: $280 / Non-Members: $305

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 Craft Box.

Camp runs 8:00 am – 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

Please note: This is not a travel camp.

ZooCamp Craft Boxes – **New for 2021** To keep campers as safe as possible we are limiting share materials at camp and providing each camper with their very own ZooCamp Craft Box.  Craft boxes consist of everything that camper may need, including coloring utensils, craft scissors, glue sticks, google eyes, yarn, boondoggle, and more.

Week 5 (July 12th-16th) 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.

Week 10 (August 16th-20th) ZooMysteries

Calling all sleuths! The natural world is full of mysteries, and for each one solved another dozen remain. From answering the whys and hows of crazy adaptations to looking at new animal discoveries and more, we will examine recently solved mysteries, explore those that remain unanswered and maybe discover a few more in the process! Curiosity required.
