Our nature camp is designed to enable children, ages 5 through 12 years old, to experience the wonders of summer by attending workshops featuring a wide variety of animal-related topics, including animal communication, predatory instincts, animal defense strategies and animal social networking! Workshops run July 5 through August 19 (Monday - Friday) from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Camp themes repeat so you can plan around your summer vacation and not miss a thing!
The registration fee is $150 for Buffalo Zoo members and $165 for non-members. Multiple child and week discounts are offered. A limited number of scholarships, as well as before care and after care, are also available.
Camp activities include exhibit visits, animal information sessions, games, songs, stories and live animal contact. Participants, under the supervision of Zoo staff, will have the opportunity to interact with various mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and arthropods from the Education Department’s animal collection. Summer Nature Camp also includes some outdoor activities, so campers are advised to wear appropriate clothing.
