Summer Camp Registration 2021

Monday, June 7, 2021 — Monday, July 26, 2021
8:00 am — 12:00 pm

For the 2021 summer camp season, Reid Park Zoo is offering half-day, in-person summer camp at the Zoo on Mondays- Thursdays throughout June and July. These in-person sessions will include animal ambassador encounters, behind-the-scenes opportunities, and hands-on activities that will help teach participants about animal adaptations, animal habitats, and why it is important to human health to keep animals and the environment healthy. Participants will also see first hand how the Zoo’s Animal Care staff use STEM every day to care for the animals, and why saving wild animals and wild places is so important.

Each week will also include a 2-hour wrap up VIRTUAL celebration on Friday, where camp participants can enjoy additional behind the scenes tours and animal encounters from home; experiences that they may not be able to experience in person at the Zoo due to COVID precautions.

Camp hours are: Monday – Thursday from 8am-12pm (at the Zoo), Friday from 9-11 am (virtually from home).
