Who said you can’t learn and have fun at the same time?

Welcome, ZooCrew Families!

SUMMER ZOOCREW

WHAT & WHY: While we are very excited to once again be open for visitors, we cannot help but acknowledge the strange and difficult circumstances that have shaped our new guest experience and the reality of what this means for some of our favorite on-site programs. This has been an incredibly difficult decision for us; the energy, enthusiasm, and passion of your ZooCrew campers is the true embodiment of all that we stand for and believe in, and having them at the zoo throughout the summer is a constant joy and reminder of why we do what we do. We want, more than anything, to stay connected with all of our wonderful ZooCrew families and to offer you a program that meets our highest standards for camper safety and fun.

Given the current restrictions and guidelines set forth by the state of Massachusetts and the many uncertainties still existing around COVID-19, we feel that for the month of July, we are best able to serve you by hosting a Virtual Summer ZooCrew program.

 

WHO: Our new Virtual ZooCrew programs are recommended for ages 5-10 years old or 11-15 years old, as specified next to each session’s title.

 

WHEN: Each week of camp will feature daily Zoom calls from 10:00 am to 10:45 am, jam packed with live animal encounters, activities, and crafts, followed by a suggested activity for later in the day.

 

WHERE: Right from your own home!

 

HOW: Registration is now open online for $40/week for Members and $50/week for Non-members for 1 child, with a reduced price of $20/week for each additional sibling.
