Campers are organized into the following groups: Lambs — 5 and 6-years-old; Hawks — 7 and 8-years-old; and Gators — 9, 10 and 11-years-old. The groups spend time touring different parts of the zoo, meeting a different animal up-close in the classroom each day, playing animal-related games and making crafts.
