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.
Summer Day Camps for 2017 will be posted on the zoo’s website www.caldwellzoo.org in March
All camps require advance registration and payment.
Registrations cannot be accepted by phone.
½-day camps (9:00 a.m.-noon)
full day camps (9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.)
All Day Camps are full. Please call if you would like to be on a waiting list.
“A big thank you to all the kids who participated in our zoo camps. We had a great summer! The zoo teachers had fun, too. See you next summer!”
