Zoo Camps

All camps take place outside! Camps at the Children’s Zoo are specifically designed to facilitate outdoor play and education while nurturing team-building and problem-solving concepts in a fun and encouraging environment. We encourage playing hard and getting dirty and/or wet! Please send your camper in clothes and shoes that can withstand these types of activities!

The possibilities are endless at our summer day camps!

All zoo camp sessions are two (2) days long, and include fun camp activities and crafts, a stylish Zoo Camp t-shirt (required to be worn both days) and a tasty morning snack!

Campers are required to bring a lunch with them both days, and all campers MUST be picked up at the end of camp unless other arrangements have been made ahead of time.

Please refer to the Registration Form for further details.
