Important ZooCamp Information
Who is Winter Zoo Camp for?
Winter Zoo Camp is for children (ages 4-9) 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 winter break.
Each camp is led by a trained instructor along with trained assistants. The maximum class size is fifteen for ages 4-5 (Critter Club) and twenty for ages 6-7 (Wild Bunch), and 8-9 (Zoo Troop). 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 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 AM and/or PM extended care should have extra snacks packed, as well.
Extra Fees (if applicable):
In the event that a camper is dropped off after 9:15 a.m. or has to be picked-up before 2:50 p.m. there is a $10/day charge. In addition, there is a late pick-up fee of $1/minute beginning at 3:15 p.m. for regular pick-up (daily maximum charge $15) and 5:00 p.m. for extended care pick-up.
Camps are held rain or shine. Please make sure your camper dresses appropriately for the weather. Provide rain gear in the event of rain and/or cold weather gear for chilly temperatures. 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.
