Register for Camp

Woodland Park Zoo’s Summer 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. Our summer 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 (NGSS) with themes that are thought-provoking, educational, and fun.


Camp Scholarships

To support accessibility for families with financial barriers, we offer both partial and full scholarships. These scholarships can also apply to extended care registrations.

During the registration process, you will select that you are applying for a scholarship and complete the prompted questions. This will reserve your program selection without requiring immediate payment of any fees while staff review your scholarship request.
Staff will review scholarship requests bi-weekly and award, until funds are exhausted. 

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at camps@zoo.org if you have any questions. We are happy to walk you through this process.
