Junior Explorer Program at the Erie Zoo

Junior Explorers- Ages 11-15

Part Junior Zookeeper and Part Junior Volunteer.  Campers will shadow a few zookeepers and try out different volunteer stations at the zoo including touch tables, kangaroo, wallaby and lorikeet yards, as well as learning about different zoo careers. Time will also be spent making animal enrichments, visiting "behind the scene" areas and participating in conservation activities. Learn about zoo animals and how they are cared for while participating in a hands-on fun-filled day.  This is a great way to earn service hours for a project.  At the end of the week, your child will become an official Erie Zoo volunteer and will conclude with them earning their volunteer shirt and badge. (Volunteering is not required after this program).

WHO: Kids Ages 11-15

COST: $205 members (Additional child from same family $180) / $240 non-members.
