Summer Camp Experience for Grades 7-8

For the 2022 summer camp season, Reid Park Zoo is offering a two-day summer camp experience for students going into grades 7-8. This two-day program will include animal ambassador encounters, behind-the-scenes opportunities, and hands-on activities.

2022 Topic: Animal Wellness and Conservation 

Wellness isn’t only important for humans, it’s important for animals and the planet, too! Your camper won’t want to miss this two-day camp where they will explore the science used to help animals thrive, both in the Zoo and in their natural habitats. Campers will build skills by using some of the same tools as wildlife scientists and gain an understanding of modern animal husbandry standards by designing animal habitats, enriching an animal’s space, and participating in a mock veterinary case study.


Camp hours are: Thursday – Friday from 8:30am-4pm

ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Registration links are listed below. Please carefully check the grade level for each camp.
