Junior Zookeeper Info Meeting

Students who are currently in 5th grade or higher are eligible to begin participation in Miller Park Zoo’s Junior Zookeeper (JZK) program this summer.

The JZK program is great for students who are looking for experience working with people, learning leadership and time-management skills, and spending some quality time with animals. Beginner JZKs attend a one-week summer camp; camp sessions are held throughout the summer. The fee for camp is $199 for family-level members of the zoo society and $239 for nonmembers; this fee includes a t-shirt, name tag, and all class materials.

In order to receive an application, students and at least one of their parents/guardians must attend an informational meeting on March 6, 7, or 9 from 7:00-8:00pm at Miller Park Zoo. Doors will open at 6:45pm and close at 7:05pm. Reservations are not needed.
