Children interested in animals, conservation and nature will have an action-packed week discovering the natural world through activities, games, crafts, stories, interpretive programs and animal visits. Camps are divided into age ranges as follows:

  • Zoo Sprouts (children in kindergarten in the 2017/2018 school year)
  • Zoo Rangers (children in grade one in the 2017/2018 school year)
  • Zoo Navigators (children in grade one in the 2017/2018 school year) - there is no difference between Zoo Rangers and Zoo Navigators. Once Zoo Rangers sells out, we will offer 5 weeks of concurrently run grade one camps due to the high demand for this age range.
  • Zoo Voyagers (children in grade two in the 2017/2018 school year)
  • Zoo Explorers (children in grades three or four in the 2017/2018 school year)

Date: Weekly, July 3 – August 24, 2018
