Zoo Camp is open to children six through ten years old. During these years children are gathering memories and developing attitudes that will influence the rest of their lives. The El Paso Zoo is the perfect environment in which to explore the wonders of nature. Through self-discovery and active involvement, campers experience the natural world while learning about the role they play in that world.
It is our goal that your child comes away from the Zoo Camp experience with a new understanding of nature and how the natural world works. We also hope that zoo campers will become as concerned with conservation as we are, helping us protect and preserve this beautiful planet for all life, including our own. Zoo Camp activities, whether they are games, crafts, or songs, illustrate environmental concepts and are chosen to help us achieve these goals.
