Zoo Crew

We are looking for an elite team of responsible and fun-loving teens to be a part of our inaugural Zoo Crew! This volunteer program is extremely limited so don’t delay! Spaces will fill up fast.


Our Zoo Crew program provides valuable work experience for teens. Zoo Crew volunteers will be important contributors to the Caldwell Zoo’s super popular Summer Camps. Every day will be challenging and focused on fun!

When you become part of the Zoo Crew, you will assist our professional counselors to create awesome experiences for the youth of Tyler. Crew members will have active rolls in leading activities, guiding games, helping with crafts and generally making camp exciting and fun. Every day is based on celebrating the natural world through up-close, unique experiences.

If you love the outdoors, helping others and are wild about amazing animals, then we invite you to join our team. The Zoo Crew program is made to provide a supportive and fun environment to build confidence, grow new relationships and develop real-world skills to use towards college applications and future careers. Zoo Crew volunteers may even get hands-on training to present Caldwell Zoo Ambassador animals. Plus, team members receive discounts in the Caldwell Zoo café and gift shop.

Volunteer opportunities are available throughout the summer beginning on June 6, 2022. Zoo Crew members are required to commit to a minimum of 2 action-packed weeks. Daily hours are from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM each day. This is a great opportunity to make the summer special for you and our campers.

We hope to see your application soon!
