Keeper Camps >> 

Do you love animals? Do you think measuring, scrubbing, sweeping and interacting with wild animals would be a perfect day? Have you always wanted to be a zookeeper? Well, here is your chance to see if you have what it takes. Come to the Zoo for a hands-on, behind the scenes, fun-filled day. Participants will spend their day with a staff member watching up-close trainings, cleaning exhibits and creating enrichment for some of our animals. We will provide lunch, a T-shirt and a Keeper-tastic time! Please download and complete this form.


  • Participants must submit a current (within three months of camp date) and certified negative TB test two weeks prior to camp. Submission form can be found online, at hoglezoo.org.
  • We reserve the right to cancel the registrations of children registered in sessions that do not match their age/grade.
  • Participants must wear weather-appropriate clothing and close-toed shoes that can get dirty and wet.
  • Due to the nature of the program, each camp is limited to 4 participants, with a minimum of two participants.
  • If a camp must be canceled, participants will be notified in advance.
