Monday, July 27, 2015 to Friday, July 31, 2015
Camp begins at 9:00 AM and ends at 3:00 PM every day

Campers will become deeply immersed in the work of a wildlife ecologist to learn about ecology and conservation biology and become "ecosystems experts." Through hands-on experiences using Zoo exhibits, animals and resources, campers will explore the interactions of living and nonliving things within an ecosystem, observe physical and behavioral adaptations of different animals, and develop their own ecosystem to better understand the natural world.

School is closed on Monday, May 25th in observance of Memorial Day.
