Zoo University (Zoo U)
In Zoo U, campers aged 10-14 years study more advanced subjects while playing topic-based games and making new friends at the zoo. Group age offerings vary by week. Each curriculum is offered weekly, depending on the camper's age.
Investigate what motivates animal behavior and how animals "learn" to do these things. Participants will think like scientists as they explore animal behaviors and design their own projects focusing on interesting animal behaviors from snow leopards to gorillas to humans!
Animals On The Fly
Take off with us as we explore the flying animals around the zoo. Through games, observations of zoo animals and experiments, participants will discover what makes flight possible.
