Animal Keeper/Zoo Keeper

Monday, April 10th

9am – 1pm, $45

Lions, Tigers & Bears OH MY. Well here at EcoAdventures it’s Gators , Snakes & Lizards, OH MY!   Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be an animal keeper?   If yes, then you’ve come to the right place. Not only has some of our staff worked in some great zoos and aquariums but we have a great collection of our own! This camp was designed for students that want to find out what it is like to work with animals. Maybe you could be a dolphin trainer or animal trainer, or even a vet? It a lot of fun working with animals but you will also be introduced to the non –glamorous things you do as a zoo keeper. That’s right- the yucky stuff- Clean poop! We won’t make you clean it- but you can get to make, inspect and eat your own edible chocolate poop for a snack to give you energy to prepare to pass the physical tests:   shoveling hay, carrying heavy buckets of food? Play some fun relay races to prove you are ready! What are the requirements to be a zookeeper. And what can you do now to get ready. Your fun filled zoo day will be accompanied by lots of hands-on encounters, feeding demonstrations, live animals, props, crafts, and more. Sign up now, and ignite your passion to be a zoo keeper for a day!

Summer Fun in the Sun!

Tuesday, June 13th & Wednesday, June 14th

9am – 1pm

School is out early so this week, we have FUN in the SUN outdoor activities as well as our regular repertoire of animal interactions, crafts, creative snacks and games. Let’s go outside and have gator and turtle races, or go on a hike.  Bring your bathing suit as each day we will play “FIELD DAY GAMES” and be the first to try out our ECO Mining Co. Water stop feature. Campers will experience the EA Mining Co. a  “Wild West Water Stop” feature just out back of the ECO Bunkhouse, where we have our sluices set up and the ore is rich (we hope…).   Prospectors will learn all about gold/silver mining, how to prospect, pan for gold and look for fossils, how to use a sluice, introduction to critters we may run into in the wild west, different ways to excavate, and even how to identify precious gems and real fossils!!  At the end of their shift, the lucky miners (everyone) will get to weigh their findings at the Gold Dust Gulch Trading Post, where they can swap their nuggets for something they can actually take home!!  The sluice boxes are a little leaky and the old Water Stop is unpredictable at best!
