Zoo Camp

Zoo Camp Programs

Our Zoo Camp programs feature incredible experiences for elementary and middle-school aged children. At Zoo Camp, your child will come face to face with some of our friendly zoo animals, get a behind-the-scenes look at zoo operations, and visit with our knowledgeable zookeepers!

Family Camp!

Families of our Zoo campers have one common complaint about our camp program, the adults don’t get to participate in all the fun camp activities the kids get to do! That’s changing now! Join us for Zoolympics Family Zoo Camp, where the whole family gets to play and learn together!

Offered Saturday, May 20th from 10 am to 12 pm.

Cost: $20 per person (adult and child).

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. Pre-registration required.
