“The El Paso Zoo and Botanical Gardens believes in animal education through entertainment and these camps offer a wild adventure for children,” said El Paso Zoo and Botanical Gardens Director Joe Montisano. “Where else can a child enjoy a close-up encounter with exotic animals all while learning about the importance of saving wildlife!”

Additional activities include understanding animal behavior, assisting in the feeding of animals, creating animal enrichment treats, engaging in crafting sessions using natural materials, and learning about the importance of sustainability. The camps also provide an opportunity to make new friends, indulge in physical activities, and learn leadership skills. Campers will team up for exciting scavenger hunts, team-building exercises, and much more.

The camp fee includes all supplies, a camp T-shirt, a daily snack, and a digital group photo. To register or for more information, visit the El Paso Zoo at www.ElPasoZoo.org.
