2024 Zoo Camp

Spend a week this summer exploring some of the most amazing creatures on the planet through fun-filled, educational Zoo Camp programs!  The week will be packed with animal encounters, exclusive tours, exciting classroom lessons and other fun activities.  Program themes are designed to be fun and engaging for each group.

Full-day campers are responsible for bringing their own lunches or pre-ordering boxed lunches Monday-Thursday.  A pizza lunch is provided by the Zoo on Friday. 

The Zoo cannot be responsible for, or dispense, any medications to campers.

Campers should register for one full week of camp only.  Campers may attend Zoo Crew, Marine Biology, or Vet Camp in addition to one full week of Zoo Camp.

ZOO CAMPERSHIP FUND

This year we’re launching the Campership program, making Zoo Camp more accessible to campers who otherwise could not afford to attend. This camp scholarship will cover the cost of camp registration, before and after camp care, a $50 transportation stipend for the camper’s legal guardian, and daily lunch for eligible campers. Join us in making camp accessible by donating to the Campership Fund today – every donation helps a camper experience the fun and magic of Zoo Camp.
