Mill Mountain Zoo’s popular summer camps are a terrific way to introduce your child to the animal kingdom or to foster an existing interest in the feathered, furry and scaly critters we share the planet with.  Each 3 day camp is designed to encourage a child’s respect and enthusiasm for the natural world through hands-on, fun and educational activities.  Besides shadowing and assisting keepers, campers will experience up-close animal encounters, arts and crafts, scavenger hunts, scientific explorations and OH, SO MUCH MORE!  There are camps available for ages 6-13.

Special Notes!

  • All camps are outdoors and go rain or shine so students must dress appropriately. Tennis shoes are best.  No flip flops, sandals or crocs please! 
  • All camps are from 9am-3:30pm, although there is After Camp Care available.
  • Campers will need to bring a lunch. The zoo will provide water and juice.
  • Space in all camps is limited. Registration is required one full week prior to the start date of the camp.
  • The Emergency Medical Form and the Liability Form will be emailed to you upon receipt of your registration form. Please return forms by the start date of camp.
  • No refunds unless zoo cancels camp.
