Zoo Camps

Children love our fun and educational Zoo Camps! They gain knowledge and understanding in what it takes to be a zookeeper, and they make friends and memories that last a lifetime.

2024 Summer Camp

Each weeklong Summer Camp includes a lot of learning and fun, with crafts, stories, snacks, animal visitors, and in-depth tours of the zoo. Regular summer zoo events and shows are incorporated into camp each week.
