The El Paso Zoo has opened registration for the “Conservation Warriors” Spring Break Camp that will take place at the zoo this March.
The Spring Break camp will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., March 9 to March 13 and March 16 to March 20.
The zoo encourages parents to register their children for an adventure where the education team will provide educational and hands-on opportunities for children to learn about wildlife, wild places, and ways to help the planet.
“The camp will have a strong focus on the conservation of endangered species and sustainable living,” El Paso Zoo officials shared. “Campers will have the opportunity to learn about why animals become endangered and ways they can make a difference in their everyday lives to help wildlife.”
At the end of the week, campers will have a better understanding of the hard work and love put into caring for all of our El Paso Zoo animals. The camp is open to children from 11 to 14 years of age, but space is limited to 20 campers per week.
In addition to Spring Break Camp, parents can register their children to be part of Summer Camp at the zoo that will be offered for ten weeks, starting June 1 and wrapping up on August 7.
Summer camp will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Summer camp will focus on careers in the zoo with the theme “Junior Zoo Keeper.”
Participants will learn what it takes to care for animals in a zoo, from exhibit maintenance to diet preparation to enrichment building. Registration for Summer Camp will open on March 23.
