Zoo CAMP | wild by design


For children ages 10-11

Let’s build a zoo! During the week, campers will take a closer look at animal designs and adaptations while paying careful attention to what goes into creating wild spaces for animals at the Zoo. We will look to nature’s blueprint for inspiration as each camper designs and creates an innovative animal exhibit. The week will culminate with campers unveiling and sharing their one-of-a-kind zoo with family and friends. 

Choose one week only!  Full-day only, 9:15am-4:00pm.

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.

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