John Ball Zoo's Summer Zoo Camp is a unique, hands-on learning experience for children ages 3 years to those entering 9th grade! Each class follows a specific wildlife theme and uses a variety of methods to stimulate the learning process (role-playing, behind the scenes tours, games, stories, songs and more). Special projects are often brought home throughout the week. Each class has their own room with a qualified instructor and educational aide, and will frequently spend time in the zoo and park setting. Day camp and overnight programs are designed for the age students will be at the start of class or for the grade level students will be entering in fall. Class sizes are strictly limited to provide a high quality experience.
