Why Camp Zoo?

Children will have fascinating adventures with the natural world at Camp Zoo. Each session is filled with up-close animal encounters, behind-the-scenes experiences, hands-on activities, games, in-depth investigations and organized free time.

All camp lessons and activities are age-appropriate and designed for multiple learning styles.

Camp Zoo1 800Children will have fascinating adventures with the natural world this summer at Camp Zoo. Each week-long session is filled with up-close animal encounters, behind-the-scenes experiences, hands-on activities, games, in-depth investigations and organized free time. During the mornings, we take advantage of the cooler temperatures and participate in outdoor activities such as water-play and hiking. In the afternoons, when the temperatures increase, more time is spent participating in indoor activities.

Two different camp topics are offered on alternating weeks, so children can attend more than one session at Camp Zoo. All camp lessons and activities are age-appropriate and designed for multiple learning styles. Campers engage in projects independently and within groups, which encourages individual expression and helps promote collaborative skills. Content is delivered with an awareness of campers’ development and is flexible to meet the needs of each particular group.

Camp Zoo instructors have respect and understanding for children and a deep passion for the natural world. They are well trained in interpretive techniques, group management and activity facilitation.
