THIS SUMMER, KIDS CAN GO WILD AT OKC ZOO CAMPS
June 11, 2019
Make this summer one to remember with a series of week-long day camps at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden! Each camp has its own theme and includes educational activities, in-park exploration and unforgettable experiences you can’t find anywhere else. These adventure-filled camps for kids ages 4 through 15 are weekly through the August 9 and include half-day options for 4 to 5 year olds. Themes for 2019 summer camps include: Dr. Zoo Little (for aspiring veterinarians); The Great EscApe; A Jungle Story; Turtle Talk; Master Zoo Chef; Web Walkers; Weird Science; Ele-bration; A Kaleidoscope of Color; and more!
“Summer break is a great time to let kids explore their passions and the Zoo is the best place in Oklahoma City to both inspire a connection to nature and use that connection to build a scientific understanding of the world,” said Rachael Robinson, OKC Zoo director of education. “With 20 summer camp options to choose from, there is something everyone will love.”
Camp availability is limited and some options are at or near capacity. Full-day camps are weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and cost $300 per student (non-members) and $275 per student for ZOOfriends members. Half-day camps, available for 4-5 year olds, are weekdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and cost $160 per student (non-members) and $145 for ZOOfriends members. Extended care options are available from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. for an additional $50 per week. All camps include a free t-shirt! Registration is available online at okczoo.org/camps and by phone at (405) 425-0218.
