Zooper Heroes Camp is a day camp offered to children with special needs who will benefit from having individual support from a parent or professional. Campers will meet animals in the classroom, visit exhibits throughout the Zoo, make crafts, and play games to connect information discussed in the classroom with the animal kingdom. Campers are asked to have an adult with them each day of camp, with no additional cost for the adult. The adult can be a parent, guardian, or paraprofessional.
Nashville Zoo has been working with Vanderbilt Kennedy Center's Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders (TRIAD) to form the structure of the camp. Supports will be included for campers throughout the day such as a visual schedule, visual supports, first/then boards, quiet areas, and choice boards.
