Junior Safari Summer Camp allows campers the unique opportunity to interact with the Zoo’s animal collection while participating in age appropriate science-based learning experiences.
Camp activities include animal presentations, handling opportunities, art projects, and science projects. 
Activities occur within the safety of Zoo grounds under direct supervision of trained camp staff. 
Camp hours run from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., with “early bird” and “night owl” options available.
