Join In The Fun July 9 – August 24
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 watery habitats, the “bad” reputations of some animal species, animal IQ and what it takes to run the zoo! Workshops run July 9 through August 24 (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.
