Beardsley Zoo Summer Camp Schedule
July 1 - August 16
Children get a fun week of activities, tours, and behind-the-scenes experiences at Beardsley Zoo Summer Camp July – August. Each day Patrollers patrol an area of the Zoo– Rainforest, Predators, Farmyard, Hoofstock–and have a special presentation by our keeper staff.
The activities may include making enrichment items for the animals, watching training procedures, learning about new habitats, and more. We offer Zoo-related games, crafts and activities for the younger Patrollers.
Sessions for older children may include tracking, scientific observation, and artifact identification. Zoo Patrollers also take part in all special summer shows offered by Zoo staff.
