Camp Description

Sometimes all an animal needs to stay healthy is a bit of TLC. Help the Zoo provide the excellent care that keeps our creatures comfortable and happy!

Day Overview

**Schedule Subject to Change

Question of the Day

AM: What is the best way to care for an injured bird (who doesn’t like to be touched)? PM: Can you build something that will help birds stay calm while caring for them?

Zoo Exploration

Cinereous Vultures, Bald Eagles, Condors, Flamingos, Keas, Lorikeets. What did we see? How did this help us solve the Question of the Day

Animal Experience

What animal(s) did we meet in our classroom? Why did we meet the ones we did?

Engineering Challenge

Campers design and build something that will help a bird stay still and calm while caring for them. What did we design and why is that the best solution?

Further Exploration

How did we explore the Question of the Day further? What areas of the zoo did we explore in the afternoon?

Taking It Home

How can we apply what we’ve learned to injured pets at home or at school?


  • Please review IMPORTANT INFORMATION, as well as our Policies and Procedures, to ensure you and your child are ready for camp.
  • Campers must bring a lunch, water bottle, and dress for the weather (plus lots of walking!). As most animal exhibits are outside, we WILL go outside every day.
  • A photo ID is required every day at pick up. Please notify the staff ahead of time if someone who is not on the authorized pick-up list will be picking up your child.
  • To contact us during the day, add authorized pick-ups, or to arrange a late arrival/early pick-up, call the Guest Care Center at 720-337-1400.
