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.

Summer CAMP, $400 per week

Week-long camps are Monday – Friday, 9 am to 4 pm
Aftercare until 5 pm available for an additional fee

Registration is currently closed for the season. Please check back in Spring 2023!
