Join us for a week of fun, fascination and friendship as campers learn about the animals here at ZOOMARS and those who share our planet! Through creative play, crafts, games, songs and storytelling your child will be enriched each day learning about animals and what they teach us.
Campers will work side by side with zookeepers to feed and care for the animals and help with daily chores like feeding guinea pigs, brushing the goat and sheep and other surprises. Campers
will also get to polish up their saddles for a special ride around the ZOOMARS trail with one of the cowboys.
The camp's director, Jacque Tahuka Nunez, is a descendent of the Californian Acjachemen Tribe and grew up right here on the zoo's historical grounds. As a keeper of the Earth and teacher of Native American studies she makes it her duty to inspire kids to love and respect nature.
We are also excited to announce a new Partnership with the Dr. John D. Cooper Archaeological and Paleontological Center. Archaeologists from the Center will visit the camp and local Native American artifacts to share with the children and
let them explore thousands of years old midden (shells, bones and more). You getto be the scientist! Campers will enjoy other special guest speakers and their connection to animals all around.
