Wonders of Wildlife | Zoo Camp


For children AGES 4 & 5

Each day your child is introduced to a new and exciting animal theme. Amazing animals live in a huge variety of habitats--from the dry savanna, to the ocean waves, to our very own backyards! Come sing, play, learn, explore, and meet some new animal friends!

Campers will be introduced to some of the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium's most fascinating residents. The week will be packed with animal encounters, guided tours behind-the-scenes, exciting classroom lessons, and other fun activities. Program themes are designed to be fun and engaging for each age group. Snacks are generously provided by Giant Eagle.

All classes are conducted by experienced teachers and college students, each of whom are current with the following clearances: PA State Police Criminal Background Check, PA Child Abuse History (Childline), and FBI Criminal Background Check. The Zoo cannot be responsible for, or dispense, any medications to campers.

Campers may only attend one week of Wonders of Wildlife Zoo Camp (dates listed below) in addition to Zoo Crew specialty camp July 1-3.

Please note: We understand that children outside of this age group may want to attend, but we ask that only those of the appropriate age group join us. Our classes and programs are designed specifically for the age group listed. Three year olds are not permitted to attend under any circumstance.
