High School Zoo Camp

Hello Camp Family,

In light of the recently mandated executive order by Judge B. Glen Whitley  the following changes are being made to Zoo Camp processes, procedures, and requirements: 

  • All campers, 10 years old or older are required to wear a face covering at all times. 
  • Exceptions to this requirement include; if your camper has health reasons that prevent them from wearing a face covering, need to take a short break while wearing one (while remaining 6 ft apart), eating or drinking, and while participating in Splash Day.
  • Campers under the age of 10 are not required but are encouraged to wear face coverings.
  • If your camper is 10 years old or older, and arrives without a face covering, we will provide them with one and charge $1. We will not be offering masks to campers under the age of 10.

High School Zoo Camp gives campers the chance to see and learn all about how our Zoo staff looks after animals. Each day is specific to a certain department of the Zoo, giving campers the opportunity to learn about the animals they love most. Campers will participate in a variety of husbandry activities, enrichment projects, diet preparations, tour behind the scenes as well as interact with staff including zookeepers, nutritionists, veterinarians, conservationists, and animal behaviorists.
