All groups must fill out the online Registration Form and submit it to zadmissions@wacotx.gov.

  • Groups are scheduled every 30 minutes and may be increased to every 60 minutes or more to allow for proper social distancing between groups.
  • Size of group will determine availability of dates and times.
  • Do not make plans for your group until you receive a confirmation email from Cameron Park Zoo Admissions.

All school and large groups will follow current City of Waco COVID guidelines for Cameron Park Zoo including:

  • No groups larger than 10 individuals including adults and students

Tips for a great Zoo visit!

  • When you arrive at the Zoo, please stage your group in the Front Plaza and send one adult to the ticket booth to check in and pay for your group.
  • We do allow outside food and drinks into the Zoo, you are welcome to utilize any of the decks or grassy areas to picnic or we do allow school groups to exit the Zoo for lunch and re-enter when finished eating.
  • Students must stay with an adult chaperone at all times. We suggest placing name tags with an adult chaperone’s contact information on each student. This way if a student gets separated from their group, we can easily reunite them with their group.
  • Any behavior that endangers the safety of our animals, staff or other visitors will result in your group being expelled from our facility.
  • If a refund is necessary, it will be processed within 7-14 business days.
