Learn hands-on what it’s like to be a zookeeper! You’ll help prepare animal diets, make toys for the animals, participate in animal handling and clean exhibits. A small sampling of camp life: campers will make enrichment for the zoo’s residents, including pinatas filled with treats and hidden snacks for the monkeys. Expect to meet some zoo visitors up close such as ferrets, skunks, tortoises, and skinks. Another day will include the opportunity to clean some large animal exhibits (such as tigers or bears) and provide enrichment, like giant fruit-filled popsicles, to the animals. Keepers will demonstrate how they train the animals to make veterinary exams easier.
