Zooper Day Camp


Our most popular camp, Zooper Day Camp offers 2 exciting themes each summer! Children ages 4-6 are eligible for the half-day session and children ages 5-9 are eligible for full-day. Camp themes do not have to occur in a specific order, however campers are limited to only one week of each theme. Check out summer 2018 themes below!

Animal Scientists: Are you a curious kid? Do you have a love for nature and a thirst for information? If you answered "yes" to these questions, then we want you to join us! Learn tricks of the trade and practice skills necessary to be an animal scientist in the wild or your own backyard.

Eco-Explorers: Travel the world without ever leaving the zoo! Learn about a few of the many bioclimatic zones on our planet and the animals and plants that have adapted to their unique features. Throughout the week campers will explore the zoo, engage in hands-on activities and play fun and educational games!


Online registration for Summer 2019 sessions will be available beginning February 1
