1st-6th Grade – MULTI-Day Camps

Fall Camp

November 25 – 26: Extinct Megafauna
9 am to 4 pm
Can you imagine a sloth as tall as a giraffe, an armadillo the size of a car, or an otter the size of a wolf? These ideas may seem crazy but (huge) ancient relatives of these animals once roamed the earth! Through the study of fossils and biofacts, and by meeting animals up close, we will learn more about animals here at the zoo and their extinct relatives.

Calling all Jr. paleontologists! Join us to check out all the dinosaurs visiting the zoo this winter and dig our way back through time to learn about them! We will look at fossils and figure out which animals at the zoo today are dinosaur descendants (hint: it might not be who you think!)

K-6th Grade – Summer Camps

Zoo camp is meant to be a fun experience and should never feel like school. We also feel that providing this fun and exciting atmosphere gives us a unique opportunity to reach kids and inspire them to care about wildlife, wild spaces and to act to protect them.

2020 Summer Camp early member registration begins Mar. 17 at noon.

2020 Summer Camp general registration begins Mar. 31 at noon.
