Summer Camp

Looking to go a little wild during summer break? Zoo New England offers the perfect opportunity to learn about amazing wildlife while having a blast. We offer summer programs for children ages 3 through 13.

 

Franklin Park ZooCamp


Join us this summer for ZooCamp at Franklin Park Zoo!


ZooCamp is open to campers ages 6-11 and will feature a curriculum of animal, science and conservation-based games and activities. The one-week sessions will also include a daily live animal encounter as well as weekly behind-the-scenes experiences at the Zoo.

The Junior Zookeeping program will be offered for ages 12-13 in 2, two-week sessions. Junior Zookeepers will have the opportunity to shadow zookeepers in our different animal and behind-the-scenes areas four times during the program. This program will also include a more challenging curriculum and hands-on experiences to give Junior Zookeepers a feel for what it's like to have a profession in a zoo or animal and science related field.
