Grizzly Bear

Full-day camp for pre-teens and teens ages 9 - 13.



Grizzly Bear Camps blend real conservation challenges with skill building opportunities for youth. These programs strive to connect campers to the wildlife conservation work of Woodland Park Zoo in and outside of the zoo’s campus. Campers experience wildlife conservation efforts by using curriculum that caters to age appropriate science standards and youth development best practices.

Over the course of one week campers will be introduced to a conservation challenge, learn about Woodland Park Zoo’s approach to similar dilemmas, explore additional tools or resources relating to possible solutions, and have the opportunity to craft their own unique solution to the original challenge.

Please check back January 1, for summer 2020 curriculums.



Online registration for Summer 2020 sessions will be available beginning February 1
