The CEC Volunteer Program

The CEC volunteer trainee must attend approximately 42 hours of training. The training is offered once a year, starting in February.

Short on Time?

Chehaw also has a program for those younger than 18 years of age that wish to volunteer. Junior Zookeepers are teen volunteers (13-17 years old) that are interested in volunteering in the summer as camp counselors, exhibit hosts, and education animal care volunteers. Spaces in the Junior Zookeeper program are limited. Applicants will be required to submit an application and participate in an interview. Those selected for the program will be required to attend training in May. If you are interested in joining the program, please e-mail your contact information from the Contact page.
