Summer Camp at the Zoo

For the 2023 summer camp season, Reid Park Zoo is offering week-long camp sessions for campers going into grades 1-5*.  Each camp will include animal ambassador encounters, behind-the-scenes opportunities, games, and hands-on activities that highlight the following grade-specific topics:

 Grades 1-2: Adaptations

Campers will investigate what makes each animal species unique.  From fascinating facial features to bewildering behaviors, campers will observe and consider the many different and interesting ways that animals have adapted, as well as uncover how these adaptations help them survive.


 Grades 3-5: Habitats

Campers will go on a journey around the world from right here in Tucson.  Campers will see firsthand animals that live in different habitats around the world, from the vast savannas of Africa to the steamy rainforests of the Amazon and beyond. They’ll explore what makes these habitats and the animals that live in them special.

* A two-day camp experience is being offered for campers going into grades 6-8, click here to learn more. 


Camp hours are: Monday – Friday from 9am-4pm

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