For the Love of Nature

The only thing better than a trip to the Caldwell Zoo is the chance to visit often. Our programs offer children and teens in-depth experiences exploring some of the endless wonders of the natural world. If we just learn where to look and how to pay attention, nature provides so many valuable life lessons. Give your child the gift of discovery by signing up for one of our nature-based educational programs today.

Summer Camp

Summer Camps at the Caldwell Zoo are made to engage the mind and body through experiences that teach, inspire wonder and fill the hours with loads of fun. Our custom-built camps are packed with hands-on activities connecting kids with creatures great and small.


Homeschool at the zoo is for everyone, and you won’t find a classroom quite like it for miles around. Learning should excite, energize and inspire inquisitive minds. That’s why our ZooSchool is designed around the principles of curiosity, exploration and collaboration. We know learning is best when it starts with “Wow, that’s awesome!”


Not all teams are created equal. For teenagers who want to be a part of a truly special team that benefits our community, ZooCrew is for you. ZooCrew volunteers help in our Summer Camp program. We invite responsible teenagers to join the Caldwell Zoo team, where you’ll assist the youth of Tyler and gain valuable volunteer experience. Come prepared to be inspired while making a difference!
