Spring Break Camp

SPRING BREAK ZOO CAMP

Lottery registration for Spring Break Zoo Camp 2023 is now open and will close at noon on February 8th

To make our camp registration process more equitable, we are no longer offering early registration for Zoo Members. Waiting list registration will open for everyone on February 1st, and will close at 12 pm on February 8th.

During this time, you have the opportunity to sign-up for any camp weeks you are interested in. After we close registration, we will randomly select campers for each camp week, and will notify you by February 15th. You will have 24 hours to accept the spot at camp and make arrangements for payment, or to decline. Those not selected will remain on the waiting list, and will be contacted if an additional spot opens up.

No payment is required to enter the lottery process.

Join us during Spring Break for a fun week of themed animal experiences and behind-the-scenes opportunities while facing scientific challenges that put the campers in the shoes of keepers, vets, or zoo administrators and motivate campers to seek the information to solve real-life problems! In alignment with the Next Generation Science Standards, campers engage in the scientific process of observation, scientific reasoning, and engineering design to build solutions to real-life problems. Campers leave Zoo Camp with a greater awareness for the individual animals at the zoo and how to help animals in the wild, all while building their science skills and making new friends.
