Summer Safari

Each summer kids in kindergarten through the 8th grade can spend a whole week learning about the zoo and its unique residents during Summer Safari. Each class is geared to a specific age group and sessions include activities, crafts, behind-the-scenes tours, snacks, train rides, animal encounters, visits with zookeepers, and a t-shirt. Summer Safari classes enable your child to experience the Zoo and its animals under the guidance of educators, trained volunteers and Zoo staff.

Forms accepted online, by mail, fax, or dropped off. No phone registrations.
