Any child or staff exhibiting symptoms consistent with COVID-19 including, but not limited to, sustained cough, difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, or unexplained sore throat may not attend Zoo Camp. If our staff observes any of these symptoms, parents will be called to pick up their child immediately. Child may not return to camp until they are free of symptoms for 24 hours, not using a fever reducing medicine.

Important: If an individual in your child’s camp group tests positive for COVID-19, your camp is immediately suspended. We will not move campers to other groups.
