Zoo Camps

Zoo Miami Camps are a stampede of fun!    2017 Kids Crown Award   

Our award-winning camps combine education with entertainment where your kids will enjoy learning about wildlife, getting an introduction to environmental conservation, and making new friends.

Currently our zoo camp is available for registration and will operate if and how Miami-Dade County guidelines allow.  If Miami-Dade County guidelines state camps are not to operate during a specific timeframe, we will have to cancel camp weeks appropriately but will give full refunds to those who purchase canceled weeks of camp.  We are restructuring our camp program to ensure a safe environment for your child as that is our number one priority.  You can expect to see reduced class sizes, adapted activities to maintain social distancing, health screenings and other measures to ensure camp safety.  Details on these measures will be released closer to the start of camp as we wait on Miami-Dade County to release the county guidelines for reopening.

 Pre-registration is required and space is limited. Campers must bring their own lunches with beverages from home. Programs are subject to change.
