"Counselors-In-Training Camp” provides a unique opportunity for teens to gain the skills needed to become a camp counselor while learning more about their own interests and strengths. This camp includes an AED, CPR & First Aid Certification course. Campers will get first-hand experience working with younger children and get hands-on training with some of our exotic animals.

Activities Include:

  • CPR & First Aid certification
  • Dog and Cat CPR course
  • Dog and Cat First Aid course
  • Animal handling training with our exotic animals
  • Daily animal care
  • Customer service training

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.

Teens who complete “Counselors-In-Training Camp” are given preference for positions as staff members once they turn 18.
