Summer Camps

We can't wait to spend the summer with your campers! Check back at the end of this year for more details on registering for our 2023 summer camp! 

Woodland Park Zoo Camps inspire children to make conservation a priority in their lives by advancing their STEAM skills, building connections to nature, and exploring the animals of our world.

Woodland Park Zoo offers summer camp and occasional school-year break camps. Camp dates follow Seattle Public Schools' calendar.

Camps are divided into tiers by camper age. Each tier offers developmentally appropriate curricula that support Next Generation Science Standards. Curricula themes are centered around the zoo's mission to save wildlife and inspire everyone to make conservation a priority in their lives.

Ages 4-6

Learn about the world of animals through exploration. Camp curricula focus on early learning best practices and school readiness.


Black Bear
