Winter Zoo Camp

Zoo Camp fosters an appreciation and understanding of wildlife and nature through animal interactions and observations, games, arts and crafts, and other exciting activities.

Introducing Family Zoo Camp!

Zoo Camp is going “Family Style” for Winter! While we won’t be holding traditional in-person Winter Camp this year, we want to offer everyone some of our favorite camp activities on-site while staying committed to the safety of our guests and camp families.

We have taken the fan-favorite parts of camp and opened them up for families to participate in them together! We are offering Zoo Camp Craft Boxes, Early Bird Tours and Behind-the-Scenes Adventures to create a choose-your-own-camp-adventure for the whole family.
