New for 2019 - Join the Zoo Crew! Come and learn about the animals at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium and all of the care that goes in to keeping them happy and healthy. Up close animal encounters, behind-the-scenes tours, and hands-on activities will be sure to give campers a chance to experience what it's like to be a part of the Zoo's crew!

Campers will be introduced to some of the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium's most fascinating residents. The week will be packed with animal encounters, guided tours behind-the-scenes, exciting classroom lessons, and other fun activities. Program themes are designed to be fun and engaging for each age group. Snacks are generously provided by Giant Eagle.

All classes are conducted by experienced teachers and college students, each of whom are current with the following clearances: PA State Police Criminal Background Check, PA Child Abuse History (Childline), and FBI Criminal Background Check. The Zoo cannot be responsible for, or dispense, any medications to campers.

Campers may attend Zoo Crew in additon to one week of regular Zoo Camp for their age group.

Please note: We understand that campers outside of this age group may want to attend, but we ask that those of the appropriate age group join us. Our classes and programs are designed specifically for the age group listed.
