Summer Camp at the Zoo

For the 2022 summer camp season, Reid Park Zoo is offering week-long camp sessions for campers going into grades 1-6*.  Each camp will include animal ambassador encounters, behind-the-scenes opportunities, games, and hands-on activities that highlight the following grade-specific topics:

1st-2nd Grade Camp: Making Sense of the World 

An exciting week of sensory exploration is happening at the Zoo! Your camper will experience the Zoo through the five senses. They will find out which animal enjoys the taste of avocado; see amazing animals in action; hear the unique sounds of the Zoo; feel skin, scales, and feathers with the power of touch; and be an animal investigator with super smelling skills.

3rd-6th Grade Camp: The Cycle of Life 

Reid Park Zoo is home to animals of all ages! During the week, your camper will watch young animals learning and growing through play, and discover some of the jobs animals have once they become adults. Campers will gain a new understanding of how the Zoo takes care of the animals and meets their specific needs as they journey through the different stages of the life cycle.

* A two-day camp experience is being offered for campers going into grades 7-8, click here to learn more. 


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