Registration for all Summer Camps opens on February 4, 2020 at 9:00 a.m.

Campers 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. Campers are divided into ages ranges as follows: 

Campers must be the specified age for each session by the first day of camp. No exceptions. 

  • Mountain Bongo* - Campers aged 5-6 (must have completed kindergarten)
  • Sitatunga* - Campers aged 5-6 (must have completed kindergarten)
  • Greater Sage-Grouse* - Campers aged 7
  • Whooping Crane* - Campers aged 7
  • Black-footed Ferret - Campers aged 8
  • Vancouver Island Marmot - Campers aged 9-10
  • Swift Fox - Campers aged 11-12

* We offer two choices for these age groups as they are popular camps. While general tours and zookeeper experiences will be similar in either option, different themes and activities (crafts, games, etc) will be planned by the respective leaders allowing children to attend multiple weeks in the summer and not have identical experiences. If you're selecting only one week for registration, you may choose either option. Please note activities and themes are not finalized until late June.
