Spring Zoo Camp
March 21–25, 2016
9 a.m.–3 p.m.
Come and join us for a day or week of Spring Zoo Camp fun at the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens. Your child will enjoy making new discoveries every day. Through fun, safe, engaging activities, your campers will trail blaze through the week. This adventure is something your child will never forget.
Who is Spring Zoo Camp for?
Spring Zoo Camp is for children (grades pre-K through 3rd Grade) 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 spring break.
Each camp is led by a trained instructor along with trained assistants. The maximum class size is fifteen for pre-school/pre-Kindergarten class and twenty for Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade classes. Each camp 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 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.
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.

2016 Summer Zoo Camp Scholarship Program
The Los Angeles Zoo is excited to offer the Zoo Camp Scholarship Program for this summer’s Zoo Camp for children entering grades pre-K (age 4) though 6th grade. The primary intent of the program is to minimize the financial barriers and enable children with few or no resources to participate in our Summer Zoo Camp program. Scholarship space is available for one week of camp only. Scholarship allocations are contingent upon the availability of funds and the level of need. A lottery drawing will be used to award scholarships to qualified applicants. We require that you meet the financial guidelines (which are stated in the application) in order to qualify for the lottery drawing. Because of funding limitations not everyone who qualifies will be awarded a scholarship.
The basis for the lottery drawing is to ensure equal opportunity for all qualified applicants to receive a Zoo Camp scholarship award. Please note that submission of a completed application does not ensure a scholarship.
