Junior Zookeeper Camp - 291041

Each week of camp includes different activities! Join us for multiple weeks to enhance your camp experience.
Weekly Curriculum: each morning includes zoo keeping tasks like cleaning exhibits and hiding enrichment while the animals are locked safely in their dens. When we finish, you’ll experience the fun of watching the animals enjoy their special treats, could be blown eggs filled with treats for the macaques or giving the squirrel monkeys boxes with hidden treats. Afternoon activities: we’ll relocate to our open air new barn*, for a barnyard experience. The new barn will be home to several animals such as a horse, goats and miniature donkeys. There they can engage in hands-on activities and create enrichment projects like making giant frozen ice pops, handmade piñatas, and special puzzles for the animals. Campers will engage in animal themed arts, crafts and games. Campers will also get the opportunity to meet some of the Folsom Zoo Sanctuary’s outreach animals, which may include: ferrets, skunk, tortoise, hedgehog, chicken, snakes and insects. Camps often include a visit from a special guest, ranging from veterinarians, to wildlife care volunteers, to officers from Folsom Police Department K-9 unit. Each week has a different theme and focus; for example “Predators vs. Prey week”, where campers will clean carnivore and herbivore exhibits, create enrichment for tigers, foxes and ravens or dissect owl pellets. Another week’s theme, “Our Wild Neighbors”, includes cleaning the exhibits of the bears and mountain lions; making enrichment for the raccoons, skunks and bobcats; and activities such as building bird houses or going on nature walks. Just as with the real behind-the scenes daily life at the Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary, camp activities are subject to change based on the needs of animals, weather conditions, and other factors. *If barn is unavailable, camp will be held in the classroom.

Jr Zookeeper Camp - 491041

Learn hands-on what it's like to be a zookeeper! You'll help prepare animal diets, make toys for the animals, participate in animal handling and clean exhibits. A small sampling of camp life: campers will make enrichment for the zoo's residents, including pinatas filled with treats and hidden snacks for the monkeys. Expect to meet some zoo visitors up close such as ferrets, skunks, tortoises, and skinks. Another day will include the opportunity to clean some large animal exhibits (such as tigers or bears) and provide enrichment, like giant fruit-filled popsicles, to the animals. Keepers will demonstrate how they train the animals to make veterinary exams easier.
