Summer Camp Registration begins March 1, 2018 - Play and learn outdoors at Audubon Zoo.

If your child is an Audubon Zoo expert, has a passion for animals, or just loves new experiences, then Audubon's Zoo Summer Camp is the perfect fit. Each week campers will get exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the internationally acclaimed Audubon Zoo. Along with great hands-on experiences, campers learn about their favorite animals and express their creative side with entertaining arts and crafts. To add to the fun, Cool Zoo Splash Park is now part of our weekly schedule!

Zoo Camp Scholarships
Audubon Zoo offers a limited number of Summer Camp scholarships, ranging from partial scholarships to full scholarships which cover the cost of one week of participation. Please complete and submit an application to be considered for a scholarship.

Scholarships are limited and applying for a scholarship does not guarantee a spot in a summer program. To guarantee your child a spot in camp, you may choose to register your child once registration opens. If your child is later granted a scholarship, we will refund the appropriate charges.
