Roger Williams Park Zoo Counselor In Training
Interesting opportunity with the Zoo.
I am very excited to announce that we are opening applications for our Counselor in Training Program for the year 2020 for students in grades 7-12 at Roger Williams Park Zoo! Counselors in Training are an integral part of our volunteer team that helps to create a unique, engaging, and fun experience for campers that come to our ZooCamp through the summer! As an inclusive camp, we are looking for volunteers that like being part of a team, helping others, and want to work with campers aged 4-10. Volunteers learn how to work with people of all ages and varying abilities all while having a fun time learning at the zoo. These volunteers can earn over a hundred service hours.
If you have any students who want to be a part of our Zoo Community and who might be a good fit for our ZooCamp Counselor in Training program please pass along our application. Inside the application is a full overview of the position, the qualifications, and the time commitment. Please contact me (the ZooCamp Director) or Andrea Crafton, our Manager of Volunteer Resources with any questions!
Parking Lot Am Drop Off
In an effort to speed up morning drop-offs, parents are reminded that we have two lanes open for drop off in the morning. Lane one is the one closest to the school. Lane two is the middle lane. We are asking parents to use the middle lane for drop off. This will speed things up in the morning. Thank you!
