The North Carolina Zoo offers four, in person camps geared for those in rising 6th grader through 1st year college undergrad who are interested in science, animals, and research. The camp’s hand-on activities mimic field work conservation scientists undertake in the wild and offer a realistic overview of what it might be like to follow in the footsteps of conservation heroes, like Jane Goodall or Dian Fossey. Through carefully planned activities around the Zoo, campers will use various research methods used by our Zoo’s field biologists when working in the wild to save elephants, gorillas, vultures and more. Campers will use camera traps, solve human-wildlife conflict, identify footprints and bones, and study animal behavior. Campers will also have the unique and exciting experience of exploring the Zoo at night, where they will try out night-time research tools to observe and study Zoo animals and native wildlife.
This camp is $449 for members and $499 for nonmembers but we are also offering full tuition support for those who qualify.
