ZooCamp Summer Adventures

ZooCamp Summer Adventures

Summer Adventures (ages 6-10)

Members: $280 / Non-Members: $305

Perfect for budding scientists, zoologists, explorers, artists, and kids that just love animals!  Days are filled with crafts, hands-on and inquiry driven activities, encounters with wild animal ambassadors, and guided Zoo tours.  Each Summer Adventures camper will get a ZooCamp t-shirt, a chance to feed the goats in the Alex and Ani Farmyard, and a ZooCamp craft box.

Camp runs 8:00 am – 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

ZooCamp Craft Boxes – **New for 2021** To keep campers as safe as possible we are limiting share materials at camp and providing each camper with their very own ZooCamp Craft Box.  Craft boxes consist of everything that camper may need, including coloring utensils, craft scissors, glue sticks, google eyes, yarn, boondoggle, and more.

Summer Adventures 2021 Themes


ODD WEEKS:  Stayin’ Alive

Animals in the food chain do everything they can to stay alive.  Over time, many have developed amazing adaptations that keep them from becoming the next item on the menu.  Some have clever camouflage, some have built in armor and others even sacrifice body parts!

EVEN WEEKS: Wild World of Reptiles

Reptiles rock.  Shockingly diverse, turtles, tortoises, lizards, snakes, alligators, crocodiles and the rare tuataras are all reptiles, but different in their own way.  We’ll uncover the characteristics all reptiles share before exploring each group and what makes them unique.

Please note: campers may be registered for one week of each theme for a maximum of one odd week and one even week.
