Camp Fire USA Eastern Massachusetts Council
Programs >> Zoo Camp

ZooCamp is a unique day camp experience for children ages 6*–13, held at Boston's Franklin Park Zoo and Stone Zoo. ZooCamp, a collaboration between Camp Fire USA Eastern Massachusetts Council and Zoo New England, has been in operation since 1991.

Whether your child is a science buff or just loves animals and nature, ZooCamp is an educational, fun-filled journey which gives children the opportunity to explore the natural world.

Arts and crafts, nature games, environmental activities, and behind the scenes with some of the zoo's animals help teach ZooCampers about our fascinating planet. Through these new experiences, campers develop a strong sense of self, new skills, community pride, environmental awareness and appreciation, and new friendships.

Staff and Safety

At Camp Fire USA we take great pride in our diverse, enthusiastic and caring staff. Before becoming a member of our staff, each individual goes through an in-depth interview process, including background checks. Staff members are carefully selected based on their experience working with children, leadership qualities, and their ability to be positive role-models. All staff members participate in an intensive training program and all are certified in first aid and CPR.
