Summer Zoo Camp

The Fort Worth Zoo’s popular summer camp includes nine weeks of exciting themed adventures for children age 3 to sixth grade, featuring crafts and other wild activities, new technology, animal visitors, and of course, Zoo excursions. Participants can sign-up for any number of weeks they like – one, two or all nine – and Summer Zoo Camp sessions are offered Monday through Friday all summer from June 11 to Aug. 15 (excluding the week of June 30 and mini-camp the week of June 9).

Summer Zoo Camp is offered in morning sessions for children age 3 to kindergarten and all-day sessions for first through sixth grade. Please note that all Summer Zoo Camp participants must be fully toilet trained and need no assistance when using the restroom. Students will spend a considerable time outside; make sure your child has walking shoes and is dressed every day for the elements.

Remaining sessions for Summer Zoo Camp 2014 are full. Check back soon for information on Summer Zoo Camp 2015.
