Have a wild adventure at Zoo Camp!
In collaboration with Zoo New England, Camp Fire USA has been offering a day camp at Franklin Park Zoo for more than 17 years! Children ages 6-11 experience a unique environmental camp on the Zoo grounds that allow campers to go behind-the-scenes and explore the natural world of animals. At ZooCamp children are provided with a variety of educational, fun, and quality experiences. They are given an opportunity to fully discover and examine elements of nature, zoo animals, their habitats and lifestyles. Participants meet zookeepers and learn about the specific needs of zoo 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 Garden.
