March 30 through April 3
9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Join us at Zoo Camp during your spring break and discover how the skunk is your neighborhood gardener, why the opossum is the best recycler in town, and how horses have been moving us through the ages. Zoo Campers will participate in animal close-ups, games, crafts, and activities that will help them discover more about our animal friends and the vital role they play in our daily lives.

Who is Zoo Camp for?
Zoo Camp is for children independent of their parents. Zoo Camp provides a safe and fun social setting where children can focus on making both child and animal friends during the summer break.
Each camp is lead by a trained instructor along with trained assistants. The maximum class size is fifteen for ages 4-5 (Critter Club groups) and twenty for ages 6-7 (Wild Bunch groups), 8-9 (Zoo Troop groups), and 10-12 (Eco Explorers groups). Each class includes crafts, games, activities, and tours, all focused around the theme of the day.
Lunch and Snacks:
You MUST provide your child with snacks and a sack lunch each day. Throughout the day we make frequent stops at drinking fountains to keep the campers properly hydrated, but you are encouraged to send along water bottles with your child’s lunch.
