Day Camps

During the summer months we offer Zoo Camps for children preschool age to young teens.  Our summer camps are very unique and sure to be an unforgettable experience for your child.  Camps consist of enrichment crafts, horseback riding, petting zoo, train rides, music, recreation, and lots of hands on interaction with the animals, including many exotics.  Campers learn the responsibilities of caring for our animals by assisting with feeding and grooming, along with education regarding their origin and unique characteristics.   They spend time each day within the animals habitats getting to know their own individual personalities.  During free time they have an opportunity to hunt for shark's teeth and fossils, as well as enjoy the bounce house, slide, and playground.  On the last day of camp we take a train ride to the country club for a Pizza and Pool Party.  


Check out the images in our gallery to see some of the fun we've had at previous Zoo camps, such as bottle feeding new babies, riding an alpaca, playing basketball, enjoying the playful antics of the lemur, bouncing around with the kangaroos, giving the chinchillas a dust bath, playing flag football, and so much more.   Many campers return every year, making our Zoo their number one choice for summer camp programs, since no two Zoo camps are ever alike and we always have new animals to meet.  We strive to provide an enriching, educational experience and memories that will last a lifetime!!
