"Animal Dream Jobs"

Week of August 1-5

Designed specifically for campers entering seventh and eighth grade in Fall of 2022 who are thinking about working with animals in the future. If working with animal sounds like a dream come true then this is the week to dream!

Working with animals is so much more than just being a vet! Join us as we meet professionals from other animal careers such as wildlife rehabilitation, animal training, wildlife education, zookeeping and more. Discover the fun side of these jobs and the realities!

Camp Hours. A full day of camp runs from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. Monday through Friday. Camp day begins with drop off/sign in with a camp counselor at the front of the zoo. Camper should arrive no later than 15 minutes before camp start time. Pick up runs from 3:30 pm to 4:00 pm. Late pick up beyond the 15 minute grace period will be charged at a rate of $1.00 per minute.

COVID precautions. The summer of 2022 will be a bit different here at the zoo. For your camper's safety we will be limiting each group to 20 campers, kept socially distanced from the second group at all times. ALL campers will be required to wear a mask while indoors except when eating or drinking. ALL campers must answer a health check upon check in. Each camper will be given a personal "SWAG BAG" containing their own set of items traditionally shared by groups such as art supplies. Frequent washing of hands will occur and there will be sanitation stations through out the zoo. In addition, our zoo staff disinfects all high touch surfaces every hour. 

Refund Policy. If unforeseen circumstances arise refunds are as follows:

-Up to two weeks before your start date, a full date minus a $10 handling fee

-Within two weeks of your start date, a 50% refund

-Once your camp date has arrived, no refund will be given

To receive a refund please contact the Zoo Office at (805) 378-1441.

Each camper will receive one T-Shirt for each week registered. This must be worn at all times while on zoo grounds. The T-Shirts will be distributed on the first day of camp and extras will be available to purchase.
