Zoo CAMPS

THE WILDEST DAY CAMP!

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

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 school-year break camps and summer camp. 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.

 

Summer Camp

Campers may attend one week of each curriculum in their age tier. For most campers, this is a total of two weeks of camp. If your camper is 6 years old, they may sign up for both Bear Cub and Black Bear curricula, a total of four weeks of camp.
