Camp at the Children’s Zoo is 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!

The possibilities are endless at our summer day camps! All Zoo camp sessions range from 2 to 4 days long and include fun camp activities and crafts, a stylish Zoo Camp t-shirt and a tasty morning and afternoon snack! Campers are required to bring a lunch with them both days. 

Zoo Camps Run from 9am until 4pm Monday-Thursday.  Kids from Kindergarten through 6th grade are eligible to be registered in one of our summer camps!

If you want to drop off your child before 8:45 a.m. or pick them up more than 15 minutes after camp ends, consider signing up for Before and After Care! The zoo offers early drop off and late pick up for kids who sign up for summer day camp.

Before and After Care includes morning and afternoon activities and a snack.

Each day you sign up for is $10 whether you are signing up for early drop off, late pick up, or both.
