Summer Zoo Camp

Registration for Summer 2019 Zoo Camp is currently closed. Check back in January 2019 for updates!

Summer Zoo Camp is the perfect place for your animal-loving child. Campers entering Pre-K to 5th grade can enjoy up to three weeks of Zoo Camp fun and learning. View our brochure for more details on course topics, camp dates, sample schedule, and more.

For campers entering grades 6 and 7, we delve deeper into the science behind wildlife conservation during a two-week program called Conservation Camp. It ends in an overnight stay (Thursday night of the last week with camp ending at 9:00am on the final Friday of the two-week program).

For campers 12-17 years old, Wellness 101 Camp will provide an overview of the mission and purpose of zoos; hands-on experience with animal care, wellness and enrichment; participation in education interpretation and conservation projects; and introduction and exposure to zoo careers. This week-long camp will be offered multiples times during the summer.
