Financial Aid

Financial Aid Applications for Fall ZooCamp are now closed. If you applied, you will receive an email letting you know if your application has been selected to receive funds.

ZooCamp Shirts

Break camp (Fall/Winter/Spring) registration does not include a ZooCamp shirt, and campers are not required to wear them daily. We will have shirts for sale at the Merch Table at pick-up daily for those who are interested in purchasing.

Weather Reminders

Extreme weather events can cause the Zoo to close, which will in turn require us to cancel camp for the day. Sometimes ZooCamp can be open while the Zoo is closed, but if Operations determines that the Zoo is unsafe for guests and staff, we will cancel ZooCamp and issue prorated refunds. We will communicate this information as far ahead of time as possible.
