Sacramento Zoo Member Registration
Zoo members must create a username and password to log into the saczoo.org website. On March 15, 2016 at 9:00 am the link for Summer Camp registration will be posted on our website (if you log in prior to 9:00 am you will need to refresh the page). The registration link will be posted on the “Welcome” page that appears when you first log into the website. Logged in members may also view the link on the “Members’ Page” of our website. This page is available under the “My Sacramento Zoo” option on the menu bar.
On the day of registration make sure to read the Important Reminders listed above the registration link!
It is recommended that you become a Member by March 1st and create your username and password by March 7th to ensure you are included in the early registration process.
If you have any questions about this process or experience any difficulties, call (916) 808-5888 or email the Membership Department.
Registration will be open on March 29, 2016 at 9:00 am.
Once you have chosen to “register,” you will see a screen that will ask you to “Add New Participant.” Click on that button and include the first name, last name, and birthdate of your camper.
Please enter the information of the CAMPER you are registering, not your information for this step.
Once you have typed in the information for one camper, click the "Add" button. If you are registering more than one camper, please add their information by clicking on the "Add New Participant" button. This enables you to register more than one camper at the same time. Once you have added all of the campers you would like to register, please click "Continue".
Next to each camper's name, click on the link "Add Camper Information." Here, you will be asked for more detailed registration information including medical information, emergency contacts, shirt size (Zoo Camp only), etc. Repeat for each camper that you are registering.
Next you will see a page listing your campers. On this page, follow these steps...
1) "Select a Participant" - Choose the camper you are currently selecting classes for
2) "Select a Category" - Choose the grade level your camper will be entering in the fall of this year
3) "Choose Activities for: your camper's name" - Choose the classes you would like to register for by clicking on the green "+" button. On this screen, you will be informed if you have a spot saved in the class or on the wait list. Note: We reserve the right to remove campers not placed in the age-appropriate class and a processing fee will apply. Once all classes are selected, click "Continue."
Note: Your space in the classes or waitlist will be reserved until you finish the registration. You must finish completing all parent and camper forms before your space in the class or position on the waitlist is confirmed. Exiting out of the registration at this time will release your spaces in the classes.
Follow all prompts and once that is completed, you will be asked to fill out parent/guardian information.
Once all the forms have been completed click “Continue” at the bottom of the page.
If you are placed on the waitlist for a class, it will show up on the receipt, but there will not be a charge. You still must finish the transaction by completing your registration to be successfully be placed on the waitlist.
If the waitlist space opens up in the class, we will contact you to see if you are still interested, and to process payment at that time. We always recommend getting on the waitlist for the classes you want because spaces do open.
Once you are done with your registration and agree with the receipt, please click "Checkout." You will receive further confirmation in your e-mail.
If you have questions about the registration process for the Sacramento Zoo Summer Classes, email the Reservation Specialist or call (916) 808-8814.
