Summer Camps

Zoology Foundation’s summer camps are fun, hands-on learning experiences at the sanctuary.  We currently offer one-day and four-day camps with varying age options. At each camp, we meet the residents at the sanctuary and hear their stories, play games, complete crafts, and engage in activities that teach the connection between humans, animals, and the environment.  Watch your little ones become compassion-filled stewards of the Earth and start living, as well as promoting, more humane lives.

Please check back for our summer 2020 camp schedule coming this spring!


Camp FAQs

Are there scholarship opportunities available?

At each of Zoology’s summer camps, we have spots reserved for scholarship recipients. Applicants will fill out the normal camp application, as well as submit a statement of need. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, please reach out to our program director, Maggie, at maggie@zoologyfoundation.org.

How does Zoology Foundation create their camp curriculum?

ZoFo creates programming used for our own camps and regularly collaborates with other organizations to create new opportunities for youth.

Take Camp Critters, for example. It’s one of our most popular summer camps, and was created in conjunction with the University of Denver’s Institute for Human-Animal Connection. Sarah Bexell, a professor at DU and the Director of Humane Education at the Institute for Human-Animal Connection, has developed a program in China teaching youth. She has educated our staff on her program and has gifted the camp to ZoFo, where it has been modified to work at our sanctuary.

If a camp does not fit with my organization's needs, can ZoFo create a program specific for us?

We are lucky to be flexible and have the breadth of knowledge necessary to create programs that suit your educational needs all while promoting a more humane world and fostering genuine, empathy-focused connections between all living things. If you have an idea for a program you’d like your organization to pilot, contact us today at 303-951-8813!
