Hello Camp Family,

We hope that you and your family are staying healthy and safe during this current COVID-19 outbreak. We are closely monitoring the situation and are following the guidance from local, state and federal officials. As of right now we look forward to another wild summer of Summer Zoo Camp and can’t wait to meet your campers. Any changes to our summer schedule are anticipated to be made in mid-May, we will adjust our cancellation policy accordingly.

We will communicate via email any updates to our camp schedule and/or policy. At this time no changes have been made, please continue to submit any cancellation or change of weeks requests through the online forms found on this page. 

 

High School Zoo Camp gives campers the chance to see and learn all about how our Zoo staff looks after animals. Each day is specific to a certain department of the Zoo, giving campers the opportunity to learn about the animals they love most. Campers will participate in a variety of husbandry activities, enrichment projects, diet preparations, tour behind the scenes as well as interact with staff including zookeepers, nutritionists, veterinarians, conservationists, and animal behaviorists.
