Registration is open now until 7 days prior to the session start. Click here to access the registration portal. Camp tends to sell out fast - so try to get into the portal as close to the opening time as you can!

Session Pricing:

We are continuing with our experimentation of tiered pricing structure for both members and non-members. ZooCamp fees ensure we have the resources to run camp and pay our staff equitable wages for their work: caring for our campers and providing an excellent camp experience. Tiered pricing creates a built-in sliding scale, attempting to increase the financial accessibility of our camp programs by allowing families to pay more proportionally to what they have. There is no difference in programming between the tiers. Financial information is private between the registrant and the ZooCamp admin team and is not shared with ZooCamp instructors or other campers.

Spring ZC pricing is offered at three tiers. We encourage families with more resources and higher incomes to consider paying for registration at Tier 3.


Tier 1: $400

Tier 2: $450

Tier 3: $500


Tier 1: $450

Tier 2: $500

Tier 3: $550

We’ll send out session-specific information to registered families in the weeks leading up to the first day of camp.

Weather note: 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.
