Camp Scholarships

To support accessibility for families with financial barriers, we offer both partial and full scholarships.

Scholarships can also apply to extended day registrations.
Please register for extended care at the same time as registering for camp.

During the registration process:
  • Select that you are applying for a scholarship
  • Complete the prompted questions
  • This will reserve your program selection without requiring immediate payment of any fees while staff review your scholarship request. Your account will reflect a balance due until your scholarship request is processed.
Staff will review and award scholarship requests on a bi-weekly basis until all scholarship funds are allocated. 

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


Extended Care Program

The Extended Care program is available to campers in all of our summer camps.  Drop-off and pick-up for Extended Care takes place at the Education Center located between the Rose Garden and the zoo's South Entrance (entrance to the Hippo Lot is at the intersections of N 50th St and Fremont Ave N).

Morning Extended Care*: 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m., Tuesday - Friday
Afternoon Extended Care: 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m., Monday  - Friday  

Cost: $100 for the week (includes both Morning and Afternoon extended care)

*Why is morning Extended Care not offered on Mondays during summer camp? As the first day of the camp week is a busy preparation period for camp staff members, we are unable to accommodate early drop-off of campers on Mondays. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Adding Extended Care

Extended Care options are available during the online registration process but may be added at any time. Pre-registration for Extended Care is encouraged as space is limited.

If you have already registered your child for camp, you can add Extended Care by logging onto your UltraCamp account and editing your reservation.

Cancelation and Modification of Extended Care

Modifications and cancelations can be made until 2 weeks prior to the session start date.

If a session is beginning in less than 2 weeks, the program fee will not be returned in the event of modification or cancelation.
