Zoo Camp PLUS


For children ages 12-14

Are you ready to take Zoo Camp to the next level? Join us for this NEW Camp experience curated for campers 12 – 14 years of age! Register for one or both topics below.

Campers should attend only one week in each topic.

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

All classes are conducted by experienced teachers and college students, each of whom is 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.


Various dates available. See below.

Times listed below. 

Teachers meet guardians and campers in the main Zoo parking lot for pick-up and drop-off.

Explore the issues facing many of the world’s most endangered animals, while taking a multi-media approach to telling their conservation stories.  Campers will meet with experts from throughout the zoo to learn how we all work together to save species in peril, and will also be inspired by the animals themselves.  Each camper is responsible for providing their own digital (non-cellphone) camera.  Family and friends will be invited to join us on Friday afternoon for an expo featuring our favorite photos and more!

Conservation in Action

We truly believe that today’s young people will become tomorrow’s leaders in conservation.  Campers will not only become informed about many of the environmental dilemmas facing our planet, they will understand that actions speak louder than words and that conservation begins with each one of us.  We will explore ways that local actions can have a global impact and will be inspired by the zoo’s animal ambassadors.  On Friday afternoon, campers will have the opportunity to showcase their conservation knowledge for family and friends!
