At the ZooDirections
This is the first level in an exciting, four-part program for teens at Sedgwick County Zoo. All students 14-17 years old will start in Level 1, learning basic animal husbandry and the inner workings of a modern zoo.
ZAP students will learn what it takes to be a zookeeper by working in our Farms area and by spending one day a week in class learning about the science behind zoos. This is a competitive program, where students are evaluated at the end of each session to determine eligibility in ZAP Level 2. If a student is 15 years or older, and has received a satisfactory score on their evaluation, they may enroll in ZAP Level 2 during the same year. If students do not meet the age requirement to enroll in Level 2, they are welcome to enroll in additional Level 1 sessions.
Registration will be available in the spring.
Guests with special needs are welcome. Contact the education department at 316-266-8213 for more information.
