Summer Zoo Camp

Camps Filled - Check in March 2017 to register for next summer!

Zoo Camp 2016- Nature, Zoo and You!

Join us at the Zoo as we help your camper discover how they are connected to the world around them! We'll be looking closer at nature in our own back yard, discover the animals at the Zoo and see how we can all work together to make this world a better place!

Zoo Camp will include hands-on activities, behind the scenes tours, up-close animal encounters and so much more!


Registration for the 2016 camp now open!
