THE ZOO PROGRAM or “Summer Zoo Crew 2022” is designed to offer a unique experience for children entering grades 4 through 8. Children will explore the life of a zookeeper by caring for and learning about the zoo animals. The WW I Memorial Park Zoo has many resources to provide participants with a hands-on opportunity to learn about animals and their habitats. Our goal is to help children gain a new respect for animals as well as the environment in which we all live. Participants will also enjoy everyday summer activities like kickball and board games.
Given the hands-on nature of this program, children should wear sneakers and comfortable clothing.
A bag lunch is required every day except Friday, which is “Pizza Day.”
FIELD TRIPS : Every Wednesday we will take a field trip to a different zoo or location in the area. Each child will be given a Zoo Crew t-shirt which must be worn on field trip days.
Field Trip days will be Wednesday of each week.
