Spring Break Camp

SPRING BREAK ZOO CAMP

Registration for Spring Break Zoo Camp 2024 will be held by lottery

To make our camp registration process more equitable, we are no longer offering early registration for Zoo Members.

Lottery registration opened at 8 am on January 19th and closed at noon on January 31st, 2024.

We are unable to add additional names to the waiting lists after the lottery registration period closes.

Families will be contacted by February 8th if their names are randomly selected in the lottery. Those not immediately selected will remain on the waiting list, and will be contacted if an additional spot opens up.

Please be patient with us as we are working through this new 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.
