Animal Care Boot Camp

A 5-day camp that includes 4 overnight stays for grades 6 through 8

Get the inside scoop on animal care and conservation straight from the experts. Meet zookeepers and animal trainers to see firsthand what it takes to work with exotic animals. Get up close to animal ambassadors during private animal encounters and learn how we train cheetahs to run top-speed, off-leash, right in front of you at our Cheetah Run track. Take a trip to our state-of-the-art hospital to see veterinary medicine in action. Hop on board a Caravan Safari truck to venture deep into the heart of the Safari Park’s enormous field enclosures where you’ll be able to feed giraffes and see rhinos up close and try your hand at wildlife research as you become a field biologist monitoring animal behavior.

Make yourself at home in our Roar & Snore campsite and spend an entire week exploring every acre of this incredible place, including behind-the-scenes areas as you visit animal bedrooms and barns with your camp counselors. From sunrise breakfasts and early morning zookeeping to late-night Park prowls and s’mores at the campfire, the animal action is nonstop. Get ready to get down and dirty as you go through Animal Care Boot Camp to become an animal-care pro!
