Zoo Camp - Summer

Surviving Summer

In the heat of the summer, survival can be challenging for many animals as they deal with conditions including increased temperatures and protected resources such as water and territory. Find out how animals stay cool and see if they have what it takes to be a survivor. 

Surviving Summer Zoo Camp will be highly educational while still being tons of fun! Each of the 5 days of Camp will include interactive learning experiences, hands-on activities, special zoo tours, up-close animal encounters and will be distinctly different for each age group. 

Age Appropriate - Each Zoo Camp curriculum is designed to be age appropriate to meet the attention, interests, and developmental needs of each age range, therefore it is important that the age guidelines are followed. 

Duplicate Sessions - For each age range, there are 2 opportunities to attend Zoo Camp. Sessions in June are the same as the sessions in July.

1/2 Day Sessions - For sessions #1, #2, #7, #8, these 1/2 day sessions are duplicated from the AM to the PM session. Please only select one session in the AM or PM, but not both. 

  • For children age 3-5 yrs., each child must be potty trained and a parent is required to attend with the child for the duration of the camp. 

Full Day Sessions - Only sessions #3, #4, #5, #6 have the option of booking a full day session. If a 1/2 day session is desired, please email education@niabizoo.com to inquire. Otherwise, only the full day session will be offered. 

  • Lunches are only necessary for those registering for full Day sessions. 
  • Drinks - Each child should bring a refillable water bottle.
  • Registration fees are non-refundable.  
  • Zoo Camp is held rain or shine.
