Camp Fire USA ZooCamp2014 (Franklin Park Zoo and Stone Zoo)

In collaboration with Zoo New England, Camp Fire USA has offered a day camp at Zoo New England for more than 17 years!  Children ages 6-11 experience a unique environmental camp on Zoo grounds that allow campers to go behind-the-scenes and explore the natural world of animals.  At ZooCamp children are given an opportunity to discover and examine elements of nature, Zoo animals, their habitats and lifestyles. Participants meet zookeepers and learn about the specific needs of animals. All activities are aligned with State learning standards, so children get a jump-start on classes for the fall.  As part of their discovery, youth participants create wildlife journals and document their observations of animal and bird activity in Birds’ World, the Tropical Forest, Outback Trail, African Savannah and Butterfly Landing.

Sessions run from the end of June to mid-August.  The camp day runs from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. with before- and after-care available for an additional fee.
