Zoo Camp

2005 0621 110026AAHeritage Park Zoological Sanctuary Zoo Camp is a great way for children ages 6 - 12 to learn more about animals, get experience behind-the-scenes at the zoo, get up close and personal with their favorite animals, make fun crafts, play exciting animal-themed games, make new friends and have a great time! Each week of camp has a fun theme so the focus of every week is different. Campers also receive a t-shirt.
