PLAY PALS facilitate play in Kidzone, a nature-based play area for children at the NC Zoo. Kidzone is a place where children and their parents can play, explore and interact with nature in a fun and safe environment. Play Pals engage children in activities such as fort building, making mud pies, playing in the stream, walking across logs, identifying backyard wildlife, crafts, programs and much more. Activities might leave them a little dirty, but with smiles on their faces and an appreciation for playing outside!
Time Commitments: April – October, Thursday - Sunday. 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. Any variation from this schedule must be approved in advance.
Age Requirement: Applicants should be between the ages of 12 and 17. Youth may volunteer without a parent for this opportunity.
