Summer Zoo Camp

Summer Zoo Camp

Thanks for another great summer! All camps for Summer 2016 are full. Please check back in the spring for dates and themes for Summer Zoo Camp 2017.

The Fort Worth Zoo’s popular summer camp includes 10 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 10 – and Summer Zoo Camp sessions are offered Monday through Friday all summer.

Zoo members receive a 10 percent discount.

Summer Zoo Camp is offered in morning sessions for children age 3 to 4 and all-day sessions for those entering kindergarten through fifth 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.
