Get a glimpse into the Hidden World of Zoos with Winter Camp Zoo at the Phoenix Zoo!

Campers will get a behind-the-scenes look at the animals that call the Zoo home and meet the amazing people that care for them each and every day… all with a wintry twist! Through games, activities, hikes and amazing animal encounters, campers will learn all about what it takes to feed and care for the more than 3,000 animals that live at the Zoo.

Choose which day you attend based on your favorite topic, or sign up for all of Winter Camp Zoo to experience everything!

Camp Zoo is for students who are entering kindergarten through eighth grade in fall 2021. Choose from eight weeks of full-day (8 a.m. – 3 p.m.) or half-day (8 a.m. – Noon) sessions, with the option to add Extended Day Camp (3 – 6 p.m.). Please note that for kindergarten only half-days are offered, and for seventh and eighth grades only full-days are offered.

All camp participants receive a shirt, hat and water bottle with lanyard. Additional shirts are available for $10 each.  Campers must wear their Camp Zoo shirts every day. Full-Day campers must bring their own lunch every day.
