Zoo Camp

Are you up for a wild adventure?

Join us to discover the daily responsibilities of caring for the zoo’s animals. Campers will interact with Zookeepers and resident animals to learn about animal diets, enrichment, and more.

There are summer sessions available for kids aged 7-11 in June and July. The first two sessions are from June 18-21 and June 25-28. The third session is from July 9-12. Older kids can join a session from July 16-19. All sessions start at 9:30 am and end at 1:00 pm.

The cost of registration for each camper is $225. This fee covers all activities, necessary supplies, one daily snack, a reusable water bottle, a backpack, a notebook, and a Zoo Camp t-shirt.
