Zoo Mini Camp

ZOO MINI CAMP

Zoo Mini Camps are back for the 2021-2022 School Year!

Registration now open!

Now there’s another option for those single days when school is out of session during the school year! Join us for one or all of our “wild” Zoo Mini Camps! Based on our popular Summer, Spring Break, and Winter Break Zoo Camp Programs, each Mini Camp will be based on a different theme and will offer an opportunity for animal encounters, crafts, and games.
