Each week of camp includes different activities! Join us for multiple weeks to enhance your camp experience.
Morning activities: campers assist with zookeeping tasks, like cleaning exhibits and hiding enrichment while the animals are locked safely in their dens. Afterwards, you’ll experience the fun of watching the animals enjoy their special treats.
Afternoon activities: we’ll relocate to our new open-air barn* that provides a home for our horse, goats and miniature donkeys. Campers will engage in hands-on activities and create enrichment projects, like making giant frozen ice pops, handmade piñatas, and special puzzles for the animals.
Each week of camp includes animal-themed arts, crafts, and games. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet some of the Zoo Sanctuary’s outreach animals, which may include: ferrets, skunk, tortoise, hedgehog, chicken, snakes and insects. Camps often include a visit from a special guest, ranging from veterinarians, to wildlife care volunteers, to officers from the Folsom Police K-9 unit. Just as with the real behind-the-scenes daily life at the Folsom Zoo Sanctuary, camp activities are subject to change based on the needs of animals, weather conditions, and other factors.
*Note: if the barn is unavailable, camp will be held in the Zoo Sanctuary classroom. Email Laura at [email protected]
