Extended Day Hours and Fees
Extended Day Registration
Extended Day Program
Extended day is offered for all of the zoo's camps. Drop-off and pick-up for extended care is located at the Education Center located between the Rose Garden and the zoo's South Entrance (cross streets are N 50th St and Fremont Ave N for the Hippo Parking Lot).
Mornings: Tuesday-Friday, drop-off 8-8:45 a.m.
Fee per child: $28 Tuesday-Friday or $8/day
Afternoons: Monday-Friday, 4-5:30 p.m.
Fee per child: $50/week or $12/day
Why is morning extended day not offered on Mondays? Monday is the first day of the camp week and it can be challenging for children to arrive on the first morning when the other campers are not here and everything is new. Camp staff also need extra time on Mondays in order to be fully prepared for the arrival of their new groups.

Discoveries Day Camp Extended Day Registration
If your child is registered for Discoveries Day Camp (DDC), please contact the Seattle Children's Theatre to register for Extended Day. Call 206.443.0807 Ext. 1186 or go to www.sct.org/classes
Please make sure you are on time to pick-up your child. Your child will be missing you and wondering where you are and our staff will be missing their families as well. If you are late we will charge you a late fee. We will use the camp classroom clock to determine late fee charges.
Camp Late Fees (for all camp programs)
Full-day camp ends at 4:00 p.m. If you are five (5) minutes late or more your child will join the Extended Day program and you will be charged the regular Extended Day fee.
Extended Day Late Fees
We love caring for your kids, but our staff also have families to get home to and places to be. Please respect their time. If you are late to pick up campers from Extended Day, you will be charged the following late fees:
Extended day ends at 5:30 p.m. If you arrive after 5:30 you will be charged a fee of $1.00 per minute for every minute you are late up until 5:45. If you arrive after 5:45 late fees increase to $3.00 per minute. Late fees are to be paid by cash, check, or credit card at the time of pick-up. The zoo clock will be used to calculate late fees.
If you are running late, please call us on the camp parent cell phone number 206.548.2555 so that we may reassure your camper that everything is okay.
