Zoo Camp

 
 

Zoo Camp is the perfect opportunity for your child to connect with animals and nature in a variety of fun and exciting ways. Children explore the zoo through play and learning with our skilled camp counselors. There's so much to see and do with weekly sessions that offer many unique experiences. Our Zoo Camp is an inclusive camp program where ALL children come together to learn, play, and explore together. They make new friends, explore the world around them, and learn that “I can” is much more powerful than “I can’t.” At Zoo Camp, children are creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Campers explore animals and the natural world in a fun, engaging, age-appropriate setting. Activities include nature hikes, animal observations and encounters, games, and crafts. We have thousands of animals and 235 acres to explore all summer long, which means that campers may attend more than one week and still be able to discover all that Brookfield Zoo has to offer in many different ways.

If your child has a disability or special need, we encourage you to complete the Disability/Special Needs Questionnaire after camp registration which helps us individualize the supports or accommodations your child may need while at Zoo Camp.
