ZOO UNIVERSITY (ZOO U)
2016 Zoo University
In Zoo U 10 to 14 year olds study more advanced subjects while playing topic-based games and making new friends at the zoo. Some sessions are geared for 10-12 year olds and others for 12-14 year olds. For an additional fee, extended care is available before and after hours.
We offer two curricula so participants can attend one or two weeks of Zoo U. If selecting two weeks, please be sure children will not be repeating a curricula. Order does not matter.
Animal Management (Ages 10-12 and 12-14): What does it really take to provide for the animals in a zoo? How does a zoo decide which animals to keep and where to put them? Join us to take a closer look at how this process happens at our zoo.
Living with Wildlife (Ages 10-12 and 12-14): Wild animals don't just live in exotic far-off lands, we have wild animals right here in our backyards. We'll learn how to be good neighbors to wildlife, whether they be wolves, bears, birds or raccoons, and how the decisions we make every day affect wildlife near and far.
*Drop off and pick-up for Zoo U campers is at the zoo's old North Entrance. If you have registered for extended care, drop off and pick-up for those extended care mornings and afternoons will be at the Education Center near the zoo's South Entrance.
