Classes & Camps Scholarships


Woodland Park Zoo is pleased to provide limited scholarship opportunities for eligible families towards zoo classes or day camp programs. Summer camp scholarship applications are accepted beginning February 1 of each year and throughout the year for school break camps and classes.

At this time, all 2018 summer camp scholarhips have been awarded. However, we do have extremely limited scholarship space available in our Full-Day Zooper Camp session #7702B during the week of July 2-6. Although we will continue to accept applications for all weeks of summer camp, we are unable to guarantee if or when new funds may become available.

If you are interested in a scholarship for the Discoveries Day Camp program, you must apply through the Seattle Children's Theatre.

Scholarship Application



If you have additional questions or need assistance, please contact a registration staff member by email or by phone at 206.548.2424 ext 4. If you are unable to reach a staff member by phone, please leave a detailed message and we will return your call within 2 business days.
