Unsure what to do with your children when relatives are arriving and the house is full of holiday chaos? Send them to us!
Winter ZooCamp is for kids in grades K-5th, and runs around the Christmas and New Year holidays. This year we are offering a combination of two-day workshops from December 21 - 31. Curriculum is designed so that campers can register for every program without repeating activities.
December 21-22 or December 28-29: Zoofari
Are you ready for an adventure? Join us for a two-day expedition around the Oakland Zoo. We’ll tour zoo exhibits, make treats for the animals, play games, sing songs, get to meet some animals up close, and make new friends. This program is a great introduction for kids who have not participated in our full week summer camp. For our returning campers, we’ve included some of our most popular activities. Just remember, when animals are involved, you’ll never have the same experience twice.
December 23-24 or December 30-31: Nature Play
What can you find under a rock in the creek? What signs of wildlife are all around us? The day will fly by as kids tour the zoo, explore Knowland Park, build forts, look for native wildlife, and come nose to nose with nature.
$75.00 per day for current Oakland Zoo members / $80.00 per day for non-members
Don’t forget about our Early Bird Discount! Register before Friday, November 20 and pay only $60.00 per day for current Oakland Zoo members / $65.00 per day for non-members
