Join us for Keeper Camps at The Texas Zoo. Each week of our camps, we will dive into the life of a keeper with our animal experts! Campers will be assigned keeper duties to help clean exhibits, educate the public, make animal diets and truly discover life as a zoo keeper. In addition to keeper duties, campers will also have daily lessons centered on a main theme with animal interactions, and activities to further explore each week’s theme. Each day will be a unique undertaking and full of fun. Camps are offered Monday through Friday and designed to be developmentally appropriate for each age group. Ages 4 to 7 are half day, 9AM-12PM. Ages 8 to 12 are full day, 9AM-4PM. Register before March 15th to receive our early-bird registration discount of $10. Online registration closes when all spots are full. If the camp you are interested in is full, please email kboughal@texaszoo.org to be added to the waitlist. More seats may open depending on construction completion.
