7th-9th Grade – Summer Camps

7th through 9th graders who are ready for the next level experience at the zoo will love these in-depth classes during the summer. We offer 5-day camps, and single day career classes with hands-on experience!

Summer Camp is currently unavailable due to COVID-19 precautions. Please check back for 2021 updates.

Silver Class: 7th – 9th, 5-day camp, $280

Silver classes are Monday – Friday, 9 am to 4 pm, and are for students entering 7th-9th grade in the Fall.

Zoo Veterinarian Tag Along: 1-day, $85
Vet tag along classes are 9 am to noon. Campers will go on a behind-the-scenes tour of the Dr. Murray E. Fowler Veterinary Hospital to see treatment rooms, radiology and practice utilizing standard veterinary devices. They’ll get hands on experience with some tools of the trade during mock hospital exams.

7th-12th Grade – Spring & Fall

The popular Keeper Tag Along classes are happening during the spring and fall. Keeper tags are 3-hour special, behind-the-scenes classes that expose campers to exactly what is involved in taking care of exotic animals.
