Important Zoo Camp Information

Who is Spring Zoo Camp for?
Spring Zoo Camp is for children entering pre-kindergarten (age 4) up to those children already in grade 4. 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.

Our Staff
Each camp is led by a trained instructor along with trained counselors. Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten camps have a 1:7 ratio of adults to campers and the 1st thru 4th grade camps have a 1:10 ratio. Each camp includes crafts, games, activities, and tours; all focused around the theme of the day.

Extra Fees (if applicable)
You MUST provide your child with a snack 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. Children attending morning and/or afternoon extended care should have extra snacks packed, as well.

Extra Fees (if applicable)
In the event a camper is dropped off after 9:15 a.m. or has to be picked up before 2:50 p.m., a $10/day charge applies. In addition, there is a late pick-up fee of $1/minute, beginning at 3:15 p.m. for regular pick-up and 5:00 p.m. for extended care pick-up.

Extended care is available
a.m. (8 – 9 a.m.) $5/day
p.m. (3 – 5:00 p.m.) $10/day

Cancellation Policy
Camps are held rain or shine. Please make sure your camper dresses appropriately for the weather. If we must cancel a camp due to low enrollment, we will notify you two weeks in advance by telephone and issue a full refund. To receive a full (100%) refund, you must give at least 2 weeks (14 days) advance notice. All cancellations are handled by our Reservations Office.
