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 10 campers per week.

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

Here's what parents are saying about ZooCamp:

“I've never seen [my daughter] so enthused about any school or camp experience before…  Schools could take a lesson or two from your curricula -- you managed to integrate content with experience, problem solving, and cooperative group work.  You even got kids taking notes -- and looking back at them. And loving every minute of it…. My daughter was in heaven for a week.  Thank you and thank you again.”

- Lise Brody, parent of a ZooCamper
