Tadpole Academy is a great way to introduce your 4 - 5 year old to ZooCamp! Each session is only three hours long and includes stories, crafts, games, encounters with wild animal ambassadors and Zoo exploration in a safe, small group of only 15 campers per week. 

Each Tadpole Academy camper will receive a ZooCamp t-shirt, a chance to feed the goats in Alex and Ani Farmyard and a ZooCamp Access Pass.

Please note: All Tadpole Academy campers must be completely toilet trained (requiring no assistance in the bathroom).

Morning session runs 8:30 am - 11:30 am, Monday through Friday
Afternoon session runs 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday

*5 year old campers may register for both a morning and afternoon session of the same week for a full day of Tadpole Academy!

Check back next year for dates and registration information.
