Jr. Zookeeper Certification Program

February 25, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join us at the Good Zoo on February 24 & 25 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. for a FREE Junior Zookeeper certification program for children ages 5 and up!

This complimentary interactive program will be available to all guests who visit the Good Zoo on February 24 & 25. Guests are not required to attend both sessions and the program is FREE!

Participants will receive a Junior Zookeeper passport containing various educational activities. Participants will earn passport stamps for completing activities as they work toward the ultimate goal of earning an official Junior Zookeeper certificate and lapel button.

***As an added bonus, children who participate in the Junior Zookeeper certification program will receive 15% OFF registration for any 2018 summer zoo camps! This special pricing will only be offered February 24 and 25.***

This program is made possible through the Disney Summer of Service grant program provided through Youth Service America (YSA).

Mary Albert, a teen volunteer at the Oglebay Good Zoo, led a team of volunteers who designed, developed and presented the Junior Zookeeper Passport concept for grant consideration. Mary is one of only 270 young leaders across the United States who were selected to receive Disney’s Summer of Service grant. Grantees must utilize this funding to organize service oriented projects that make communities healthier, greener and stronger. Grantees are also called to educate and mobilize their peers through awareness, service, advocacy and philanthropic activities. Congratulations, Mary!
