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!

Our 6th-8th grade, full-day Summer Campers were asked to build a model of their vision of a new hippo exhibit and their idea of a commercial to advertise its opening as part of their Zoo Careers summer camp experience. The following videos are the results of their hard work and imagination. Enjoy!
