This summer, we gave our ZooTeens some new opportunities to explore a variety of careers here at the Zoo. Many of our teens explored opportunities in our Education Department, including our ZooCamp. See below for reflections from two of our teens who helped organize field day activities with ZooCamp Coordinator Dea:
On August 8, we worked together to help out with ZooCamp’s field day. We used teamwork to create activities for the campers to participate in. We created two of our own activities and used a binder of game suggestions as well. We played “Duck, Duck, Goose” with water, popcorn using the parachute, and sharks and minnows. The whole time the children were smiling and having a good time. We had an amazing time as well. It was awesome to see our ideas put into action.
