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 8-13.

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.
