Safari Day Camp class aides assist camp teachers with supervising campers kindergarten through grade 7 as they explore the lives and habitats of animals and the worldwide conservation efforts to protect them. Class aides will help with science experiments, activities, crafts, zoo walks and much more! We are looking for responsible, outgoing and motivated teens to volunteer their time and talent to this program.
Summer Safari Day Camp begins Monday, June 26, 2017 and ends Friday, Aug. 18, 2017. Camp runs Monday through Friday each week (no camp on July 4). All camp sessions are full-day (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.). Class aides are expected to arrive by 8:30 a.m. each day and will be able to leave by 3:30 p.m.
The Class Aide program is quite competitive. There is limited space available each year; therefore, not all applicants will be interviewed or accepted. Applications are due Feb. 15, 2017. Please see "Important Dates" below for more information.
By applying to this program, teens and their parents indicate their commitment to following the policies outlined below.
Please note: There will not be any direct contact with animals at Safari Day Camp.
