Theme: Super Senses - Our five senses - sight, smell, sound, taste and touch - tell us what we need to know about the world around us. Animals need this information and more to hunt, navigate and survive in ever-changing environments, but they get it in some pretty wild ways. Seeing with their ears, tasting with their feet and smelling with tongues - talk about some super senses!

Spring Adventures | April 18-22, 2022

Shake off winter with a week filled with crafts, hands-on and inquiry driven activities, encounters with wild animal ambassadors, and guided Zoo tours. Each Spring Adventures camper will get a ZooCamp t-shirt, and the opportunity to feed the goats in the ALEX AND ANI Farmyard.

Price (Full Week): Members: $310 / Non-members: $335

Theme: It's all Connected - Living in the wild isn't always easy, especially when it comes to finding food, growing up, and staying safe. Every day animals struggle to get by, but some have found a creative tool to help them survive: each other! Some animals form close relationships with other species, some live in big family groups, and some rely on specific species for food. No matter how they do it, they don't do it alone! For the animals we'll spend this week with, it's all connected. 

Registration opens January 12 at 9:00 am!

Summer Adventures | June 13-August 19, 2022

Perfect for budding scientists, zoologists, explorers, artists, and kids who 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, and an opportunity to feed the goats in the ALEX AND ANI Farmyard.

Price (Full Week): Members: $310 / Non-members: $335

Please note: Campers may be registered for one week of each theme for a maximum of one odd week and one even week. Registrations beyond this maximum will be canceled. 

Theme - Odd Weeks: If I Worked in a Zoo - A lifetime of doing what you love and loving what you do can begin with a small step. If you know a child who dreams of working with animals or in a zoo, then that small step is here! It takes a village to run a zoo, and this week we'll take a sneak peek into the secret life of zookeepers, zoo veterinary care, exhibit building, enrichment, research, and so much more. *Note: Due to USDA and AZA regulations, this program will not include behind-the-scenes components.  

Theme - Even Weeks: Magizoology - Humans have always been fascinated with the fantastical. From ancient stories of sea monsters and Minotaurs to the Hippogrifs and Acromantulas of the Wizarding World, we just can't get enough of these magical beasts. So, where did the inspiration for these animals come from? Did any of them ever exist in real life? We'll answer these questions and more as we examine the mythical creatures that live where magic and science meet.
