Thank you for your interest in the Alameda Park Zoo 2019 Summer Camp! We are a City of Alamogordo operated organization whose mission it is to provide pleasing naturalistic environments, recreation, and biological research. The intended concept is to instill through audio, visual, and tactical means, a unity of non-human and human relationships. Through professional cooperation and tactics, the Alameda Park Zoo aims to provide the public with high standards of environmental education. This educational procedure takes place in an atmosphere that promotes environmental recreation as well as education.

Campers will work with our educated zoo staff in programs that will teach them about wildlife and give them a behind the scenes look at what it means to be a Zookeeper. Campers will have the opportunity to feed animals, clean enclosures, and construct enrichment. Day camp is Monday through Friday, 9 am to 12 pm. June 3-7 is open to ages 5-8. June 17-21 is open to ages 9-11. July 22-26 is open to ages 12-15. August 5-9 is open to ages 16-18. 

Below you will find the materials required to hold your camper’s spot in our 2019 Summer Camp. A camper’s spot is not reserved until the “Summer Camp Application Form” and $50 payment is submitted to the Alameda Park Zoo Gift Shop. (checks should be made payable to “City of Alamogordo”). The full $50 cost is due at sign up. Please remember to attach a recent photo of your camper, and a camper’s spot CAN NOT be reserved without a completed application and payment. Keep the top sheet of the application for your records, and submit all additional pages.

Mark your calendars!! Please notify us if the camper is no longer able to attend ASAP. The payment is non-refundable in any circumstance. A camper cannot be substituted, as we have a wait list we will use to fill the spot in the case of a cancelation.
