Zooper Heroes Camp: Creature Care
This is a day camp offered to children with special needs. 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.
Caring for animals is a fun and rewarding experience! Whether it is an animal that is part of your family or a ginormous giraffe, animals need special care to stay healthy. Explore the inside scoop on how Nashville Zoo cares for hundreds of different animals through animal encounters, fun activities, games and more.
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.
