Zoo Camp Programs

Registration is now open for two NEW Fall Zoo Camps!

Families of our Zoo Campers have one common complaint about our program, the adults don’t get to participate in all the fun camp activities the kids get to do! This fall, that’s changing with two new Zoo Camp opportunities!

Family Zoo Camp: The Fall of the Wild

Saturday, Sept 25th

Change is in the air! We can feel it and the animals do too! Join us to learn how animals are preparing for winter, both at the zoo and in the wild. It will be an un-be-leafably fun time!

This program is designed for families with children ages 4-10. (1:4 minimum adult to child ratio per group) Children must be accompanied by a paying adult.

Adult Zoo Camp: Zoolympics

Sunday, Oct 3rd

Join us for our first ever Adult Zoo Camp, just for the kids-at-heart!

Do you know who would win the long jump, the 400m sprint, or the 100m free style swim in the animal world? Find out which animals would make it to the podium, and go for the gold yourself in our own Zoolympic games!

This program is designed for ages 16+.
