Mill Mountain Zoo presents the Three-Day Summer Camp titled "Zoo Keeper 101" for ages 8-10 starting on Tuesday, July 24, 2018 through Thursday, July 26, 2018.

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 three 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!

To register, fill out the registration form and return to the zoo with full payment. Registration may be faxed, emailed, mailed or dropped off at the zoo.
