Zoo Camp 2014

Zoo Camp project

Children ages 3-14 are invited to join us for all kinds of fun as they learn about animals. We offer two different camps per age category, that way children have the opportunity for twice the fun!

Extended Play, Lunch Options and All Day Camps

The zoo offers an Extended Stay & Play option for select weeks, with select afternoon camps. When available, this option will be for Monday through Thursday only. If you choose this option your child can stay and play a little longer. Pick up is from 5 to 5:20 pm. Fees for the Extended Stay & Play:
5-day camp - $20 includes Monday through Thursday
3-day camp - $15

Lunch is available for purchase when your child attends 2 sessions in one day. A hot dog, corn dog, chicken or peanut butter & jelly sandwich, along with a bag of chips and a fruit cup will be served for only $3 per day. Please check this option online or on your registration form.

You may combine a morning and afternoon session to create an all-day camp!
