Zookeeper for a Day

Blank Park Zoo’s Zookeeper for a Day program is for participants 13-17 years old.

This interactive educational offering will give teens an “up-close-and-personal” look at working in a zoo.  Roll-up your sleeves and get ready to help out our professional zookeepers with their daily routines of food preparation, cleaning and animal care for some of Blank Park Zoo’s awesome residents.

Your time “behind-the-scenes” may include being outside and possibly getting a bit wet and a bit dirty, so make sure to wear appropriate clothes including closed-toe shoes (boots that can get wet would be best).

This program is designed for participants with a special interest in becoming a zookeeper or working with animals in the future.  Please discuss this with your child and make sure it is something they are truly interested in.

Dates for 2017-2018 coming soon!!
