2019 Summer Zoo Camps

More camps than ever before!

Each day campers go behind-the-scenes, talk with real zookeepers and meet some of their favorite animals. Zoo Camps are led by skilled instructors who will guide your child through interactive learning opportunities and educational activities.

Camps are separated into different age groups, dates, times and topics. Register for a Morning and Afternoon session during the same week to make it a Full Day camp.

Last year over 1,900 children participated in Summer Zoo Camps.
Camps may sell out. Early registration is recommended.
