Are you in school years 4-6? Do you LOVE Chester Zoo and one day hope to run your own zoo? Are you a member of the zoo? If so, Junior Rangers would be PERFECT for you!

The training camps run every Sunday for FIVE weeks. You can choose from Sunday morning sessions (10.30am – 12 noon) or Sunday afternoon sessions (2pm – 3.30pm).

Each week we’ll explore the zoo and learn ALL about what it take to run a successful zoo from habitat design to animal nutrition! We’ll also take a closer look at the conservation work we do here at the zoo and in the wild to prevent extinction. We have lots of fun activities planned!

This time our Junior Ranger Camp will be looking at our zoo. Over the 5 sessions, you’ll discover some of the amazing species we have and learn why it’s so important to protect them from extinction. You’ll discover about the history of our zoo, and see if you have got what it takes to step into the shoes of a CEO!

Please note: to ensure animal and public safety, none of our junior ranger camps include access to behind the scenes areas, and we will not be handling any of the animals that live here at the zoo.
