Summer Zoo Camp

This year we'll discover: Habitat, what's that?

Join us as we explore the different habitats, from deserts to grasslands, and see what the animals need to survive. We'll also look at how the Zoo takes care of the animals.

Every weekly program includes:

Up-close animal encounters, tours of the Zoo, crafts, games and so much more!

Registartion starts March 2!
