For children ages 4-9

Come and learn about the animals at the Zoo and the care that goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Up-close animal encounters, behind-the-scenes tours, and hands-on activities will be sure to give explorers a chance to experience what it’s like to be a part of the Zoo’s crew!

Classes are separated by age groups.

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.
