SUMMER CAMPS ( Sacramento Zoo) : SILVER

Run by Sacramento Zoo Ages 12-14 yrs

Zoo camp is meant to be a fun experience and should never feel like school. We also feel that providing this fun and exciting atmosphere gives us a unique opportunity to reach kids and inspire them to care about wildlife, wild spaces and to act to protect them.

Zoology 101:
Take your zoo camp learning to the next level with this week of camp. Learn some basics of animal science, taxonomy, field biology and anatomy.

Enrichment 101:
Enrichment is anything that provides environmental stimuli to our animals here at the zoo to enrich their lives or mirror wild behaviors. Zookeepers work hard to make sure each animal has enrichment every day. Learn what it takes to prepare these enrichments, why they are important and even get a
chance to design your own!

Leaders of the Pack:
Find out what it takes to be a part of the zoo as a staff member or volunteer. Create a master plan, brainstorm viral marketing ideas and even try your hand in the Education Department to teach the public!

Vet Tag-Along:
Imagine what it takes to care for a toothy tiger or slimy salamander. How do you X-ray a duck’s foot
or give a shot to a turtle hiding in his shell? Zoo veterinarians have one of the toughest jobs around.
Visit the zoo's veterinary hospital and meet the vets that care for many animal species.
