Summer Camp (Weekly in July and August) - Register NOW! 

Let them go wild at Zoo Camp! Our campers spend fun-filled summer days exploring the Park and Zoo, learning about animals and nature, and making new friends. Summer Camp is designed for children age 5 to 12. Campers are divided into three age groups with activities tailored to be age-appropriate and encourage positive social interactions. Sign your child up for Cubs (nursery - kindergarten), Polar Bears (Gr. 1 - 3), or Junior Researchers (Gr. 4 - 6).

Registration closes at 9:00 AM each Friday for the following week of Camp.

Week 5 (July 31-Aug 4) – Space available for all age groups.
Week 6 (Aug 8-11) –  SOLD OUT
Week 7 (Aug 14-18) – Cubs and Junior Researchers SOLD OUT. Space still available for Polar Bears.
Week 8 (Aug 21-25) – SOLD OUT

Weekly camps alternate between two themes:

ZOOper Heroes: Survival of the Fittest (Weeks 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9)
Are you faster than a speeding pronghorn, more powerful than a charging muskox, able to leap fences like a bounding kangaroo? Join our league of ZOOper Heroes as we learn about our amazing Zoo animals and the superpowers that help them survive in the wild. We will search the world for the biggest and coolest animals, learn from the past as we dig up dinosaur facts, and discover what we can do to protect our Earth and save wildlife and wild places.

Zoo Rangers: Keepers in Training (Weeks 2, 4, 6 and 8)
Zookeepers have the best job in the world! They get to take care of amazing animals like polar bears, tigers and red pandas. It's tough but rewarding work and zookeepers love what they do. Our Zoo Rangers will get to meet our zookeepers and see what it takes to care for our animals and run a zoo! Learn what happens behind the scenes, discover amazing animal facts, and work on projects that will help animals in our zoo and the wild.

Daily activities include:
  • Hands-on animal experience
  • Visit to the Polar Playground (Zoo) or Nature Playground (Park)
  • Zookeeper talk
Weekly activities include:
  • Behind-the-scenes Zoo experience
