About our camp program:
Zookeeper summer camp is an animal nut's dream! Our entire
week long camp program is designed to ensure the maximum experience for the animal lover while safe and secure as they
observe some of nature's most incredible animals. Participants will get hands on
approach to learning about all kinds of animals, and therefore developing a greater understanding of the species and creating
a life long link with the love of nature and animals of all kinds. We take pride in being as interactive as possible with
as many diffrent species of animals as possible during each and every camp week! We try to balance out every week so we are
learning about all kinds of animals, not just reptiles. We also study mammals, birds, insects, arachnids, fish, and more!
Every week is something different!
During the camp days spent at Crocodile Encounter children
will have the opportunity to learn along side the trained professionals of one of the nations largest outdoor crocodilian
facilities. Participants can expect to develop the skills and expertise to care for all of the animals at the facility
including various snakes, many turtles and giant tortoises, various lizards, arachnids, amphibians and ,of course,our
incredible crocodilians. Campers will receive an excellent science education focusing on the animals habitat, behaviour, and
Additional field trip days are built into the camp schedule
to allow the campers to experience other forms of wildlife as well. We will get an up close look at native animals during
a trip to Brazos Bend State park, see amazing mammals at the Bayou wildlife park, and have guest speakers give the campers
the low down on our high flying friends the birds!
This summer camp program will allow your children to escape the
concrete jungle and video games that surround them and overwhelm them with the natural world. They will study hundreds
of species, and learn information unavailable in books. This will definitely create a greater passion for wildlife in the
life of your child. It is a life changing event that we hope spurs many into a lifetime of passion for the outside world.
