Teen Camp II: Into the Wild!
For students entering 8th – 10th grade
This exciting new program will take your interest in animals and nature to new heights as we spend 5 days and 5 nights at Reis Biological Station, Saint Louis University’s field research station in the Missouri Ozarks. We will explore forests, fields, springs, creeks and ponds, searching for the creatures that inhabit these ecosystems. Campers will experience a variety of field biology techniques, and will complete a research project during the session. Lodging is in primitive cabins with a central showerhouse and restroom. All meals, lodging and transportation are included.
An application and essay in addition to the camp registration form is required. If you have any questions about the registration process, e-mail the Saint Louis Zoo Education Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (314) 646-4544, #6.
Limited to 14 campers, selected through an application process. All are welcome to apply, however priority is given to applicants who have attended Teen Camp in the past, and to applicants who did not attend Teen Camp II last year.
