Chaperone requirements:

  • One adult chaperone is required for every 10 students.
  • Chaperones are required to stay with the students at all times.  Failure to do so may result in dismissal of your entire group or cancellation of the program.

The zoo staff is responsible for teaching and facilitating the program.  It is the responsibility of the chaperone to maintain control of the group.

Cameron Park Zoo’s Education Department aims to provide diverse educational opportunities that foster an appreciation for the natural world and inspire life long learning while broadening awareness concerning the conservation of wildlife and the preservation of biodiversity.
