Teens will get the chance to shadow our camp instructors throughout the week in different classrooms, so they can see the different teaching styles of our instructors. At the end of the week campers will use what they have learned from camp and take a leadership role in one of the classrooms where they will get the chance to present one of our exotic animals of their choice.
