Summer Day Camp Registration
It's not too soon to be thinking about the kids and summer vacation. Campers ages 5-14 can spend their summer days at the Zoo participating in fun and educational activities with experienced camp counselors. One camp session lasts five days and each week has a different theme, so there's plenty to choose from. The Zoo offers half-day and full-day options as well as before care and after care.
Members receive a discount on camp registration and early registration starting February 3. Click here to learn more.
