Caldwell Zoo Day Camps

The Caldwell Zoo educators offer a variety of summer day camps for youngsters ages 4-11 years. These fun, yet educational camps are age-appropriate ed-ventures filled with lots of Zoo fun. Activities include animal information, time on zoo grounds, art activities, stories, games, songs and close encounters with touchable small animals.

All zoo teachers are employees of Caldwell Zoo, have degrees and have gone through background checks and drug tests. As educators we always look forward to day camp and plan lots of fun experiences.
