Zoo Camps

ZooCamp4

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 and afternoon snack! Campers are required to bring a lunch with them both days.  This year we are excited to be offering early drop off and late pick up! If you want to drop off your child before 8:45 a.m. or pick them up more than 15 minutes after camp ends, this is a great option for you! Each day you sign up for is $10 whether you are signing up for early drop off, late pick up, or both.  If you sign up, more details about Before or After Care will be included in your camp acceptance letter from the Zoo.
