Throughout the week Jr. Zookeepers will have the opportunity to shadow zookeepers and see Stone Zoo’s different animal and behind-the-scenes areas. This program includes a more challenging curriculum and hands-on experiences to give Jr. Zookeepers a feel for what it's like to have a profession in a zoo or animal and science related field. Some topics that may be included in the curriculum are animal behavior and training, exhibit design, zoo careers, local species, animal handling, and endangered species (and how to help them!) The details of the curriculum and activities may vary and will be determined by the Jr. Zookeepers’ interests as well as the experience of the counselors who works with them. This is a full day session for 11-13 year olds. This camp must comply with regulations of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and be licensed by the local board of health.
