Zookeeper for a day

bear_cub_feed_kidsEver dreamed of becoming a zookeeper? Here is your chance to find out what a day as a keeper is really like! Spend 5 hours helping with training animals, doing chores and interacting with some of our personable animals. There are only 4 campers per day, so it is an awesome one on one experience – lots of hands on and lots of FUN! You will learn more about the animals themselves and get to know the keepers too. Each camper will receive a photo with a bear, a photo with a beaver, an animal painting and we will also send out a USB stick with tons of photos and a short video, so you can show your friends and family everything you did on your special Zookeeper for a Day.

Night at the Zoo



Join us for an unforgettable experience camping overnight in Discovery Wildlife Park! This is NOT our regular camping experience – Night at the Zoo includes much more. Evening guided tours with the owners and staff will ensure that you will learn more of the stories behind each animal as well as some hair-raising adventures! There is a silent auction with some amazing items up for bid – encounters with some of the baby animals, photo shoot opportunities, artwork, snow tours and many more. We have an exciting line up of animal friends that may visit the campfire in the evening as well! A great time to meet them up close and ask lots of questions. The campfire goes late into the evening with tales of the zoo from the early days until the present – this is a lot of fun and time for everyone to kick back and relax after a day of animal encounters. A wonderful Sunday morning breakfast is also included!
