Important ZooCamp Information
Who is Zoo Camp for?
Zoo Camp is for children ages 4-12 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 led 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 Explorer 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 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.
Camps are held rain or shine. If we must cancel a camp due to low enrollment, we will notify you two weeks in advance by telephone and either reschedule your child for another camp or issue a full refund. To receive a full (100%) refund or to transfer to another scheduled camp you must give at least 2 weeks (14 days) advance notice.
Additional 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 5:30 p.m. for extended care pick-up.
