Extended Day Program

(All Camps)

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 near the zoo's South Entrance (cross streets are N 50th St and Fremont Ave N). 


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?: Because Monday is the first day of a new camp session 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 to get ready for the arrival of the new groups.

Late Fees

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.  If you are 5 minutes late or more for pick-up your child will join the extended day program and you will be charged for extended day.

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.  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 Camp clock will be used to determine late fees.
