Summer Zoo Camp is the perfect place for your animal-loving child! Surrounded by more than 250 species of animals, Zoo Campers will learn about the wild world of animals and gain an appreciation for our natural world. View our brochure for more details on course topics, camp dates, enrollment policies, etc.
Campers entering Pre-K through 5th grade may attend up to three different courses throughout the summer. Each class includes activities based on a theme, Zoo tours, art projects, games, animal encounters and much more!
Conservation Camp, for campers entering grades 6 and 7, dives into the science behind wildlife conservation during a two-week program ending in an overnight stay.
Wellness 101 will provide 13-17 year-old campers with an overview of the mission and purpose of zoos, as well as hands-on experience with animal care, wellness and enrichment. Participants will also practice education interpretation, get involved with conservation projects, and learn about a variety of zoo careers.
