Binder Park Zoo

Summer Day Camp Program

Sponsored by:

Binder Park Zoo is dedicated to providing a safe and immersive learning environment where campers will have opportunities to shape and expand their knowledge of animals and nature. Each camp week includes fun activities, take-home crafts, animal lessons, and zoo tours. Your child will be so busy exploring they won’t even realize they’re learning!

You can expect new information to be posted on this page by the month of March before each year's Summer Day Camps.

Animal Close Encounters

Each week, campers will experience a few close encounters with the zoo's animal ambassadors.

There will be educational lessons with animals inside the camp rooms as well as the chance to feed the giraffe and goats on exhibit!

All animal lessons and close encounters are offered by trained staff members. Campers will not be permitted to hold or touch animals.
