Children entering K-6th grade can enjoy a wild adventure at
Cameron Park Zoo during our Summer Adventure Camp programs.
Camp activities educate and excite children about animals and the natural world.
Each group of campers will enjoy wild learning experiences with activities specifically designed for their age group.
All campers will explore the zoo grounds, meet zookeepers, play games, participate in
hands-on activities and go behind the scenes of Cameron Park Zoo.
Snacks will be provided daily. We offer three different, week-long curriculums twice throughout the summer.
