Keeper Apprentice Program (ages 9+) 10-1 pm Tues, Wed, Fri,
Wonder what it is like to be a zookeeper? Who hasn’t, right? This highly personal program is led by one of our credentialed animal keepers, to pull back the curtain on all involved in animal husbandry. This in-depth experience is for the older students who are serious about learning animal husbandry and medical care of animals. Students will tour the facility and learn specific information and needs of our special animal collection. Students will get to not only encounter animals in our behind the scenes animal room, but assist with animal care, food prep, training, & cleaning. This is a very hands-on experience like no other, with interactions with numerous endangered species! Whoever gets to interact with an endangered species in this day and age? YOU DO, in this extremely elite camp, the ultimate insider experience.
**Space is very limited, with only three select participants per day!! Perfect for aspiring Jr. Assistants. Please bring lunch and masks. Call to register.

**Registrations can be week to week. For full week/ partial week commitments is 6 weeks at a time session. Payment plans are available. Contact us.

Unfortunately, we cannot take credit for these Fall programs unless there is space availability. (call us the day before) Credit can be used for any virtual programs, birthday parties, private feeding frenzies, and when we resume to normalcy with “live” school. The ½ day schedules of M-Tues and Thurs-Fri are designed for COVID safety by trying to keep from introducing new children into a group every day. Wednesdays can be single days.
