Mill Mountain Zoo presents a Zookeeper 101 Summer Camp starting on Tuesday, June 27, 2017 through Thursday, June 29, 2017 from 9 am - 3:30 pm.
Just what does a zookeeper do? Campers will get to explore the various animal husbandry techniques it takes to care for the many birds, mammals and reptiles that make up Mill Mountain Zoo’s collection. The importance of animal enrichment for an animal’s well-being will also be explored.
Mill Mountain Zoo’s popular summer camps are a terrific way to introduce your child to the animal kingdom or to foster an existing interest in the feathered, furry and scaly critters we share the planet with. Each 3-day camp is designed to encourage a child’s respect and enthusiasm for the natural world through hands-on, fun and educational activities.
Besides shadowing and assisting keepers, campers will experience up-close animal encounters, arts and crafts, scavenger hunts, scientific explorations and OH, SO MUCH MORE!
There are camps available for ages 8-13.
