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 camps and Overnight Adventures are offered. Class sizes are strictly limited to provide a high quality experience.
