Colorado teens passionate about animals and curious about what it's like to be a zookeeper are invited to apply for the Denver Zoo's "Zoo Crew."

From June through August, teens age 13-17 will get to experience a day in the life of a zookeeper by assisting camp instructors with games, zoo tours, and educational activities, interact with visitors of all ages, and help with cleaning, diet preparation, and animal enrichment for the zoo's animals.

The Denver Zoo tells Denver7 that the program is competitive with limited space, therefore not every application will be accepted.
