Backstage is where campers are headed. They’ll be exploring the Zoo from the backside of things. We’ll look at everything from the most dangerous Zoo jobs to the most glamorous.
How Animals Make a Home and a Living
The Weird Ways of Wildlife:
Some animal behaviors look pretty weird, but at a closer look we learn that they’re connected to survival. Campers will get to know our gorilla troop with special roof-top viewing, and we’ll ride the Skyfari for a closer look at the behavior of the polar bears. Don’t miss this totally cool class!

Home Sweet Habitat:
Campers get ready to explore animal habitats. We’ll lure some animals out into the open by feeding them. We’ll talk to keepers and look behind the scenes at our manmade habitats. We’ll ride the Skyfari across the Zoo to explore life on the tundra. Anyway you look at it, this class is so SWEET that you’ll never want it to end.
