Summer Campers’ “ZooTube” videos (Weeks 4-5)

The sun is shining, the gibbons are hooting, and our summer camp programs are in full swing! Participants in the Zoo’s 7th-8th grade Working With Wildlife camp spend their week doing hands-on activities such as behind-the-scenes tours, learning to handle an education animal ambassador, and using field research techniques to record animal information. The week culminates with the campers researching and recording informational “ZooTube” videos about an animal of their choosing, then presenting their finished videos to their parents on the last day camp. The videos below are the fruits of their labor. We hope that you enjoy the results of their hard work and adventures!

The culminating hands-on experience comes when campers research and record informational “Zoo-Tube” videos about an animal of their choosing. They then get to present their finished videos to their parents on the last day. The videos below are from the Week 1-3 campers. We hope that you enjoy the results of their hard work and adventures!
