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.

Dates:
  • September 7, 2021: Singing in the Rain

Florida has two major seasons: wet and dry. We typically get a lot of rain in September because we are nearing the end of our wet season. Come learn how Florida ecosystems and the animals that live in them adapt to and depend on our wet season! 

  • September 16, 2021: Let the Fall Begin

September is the official start of the fall season. Let’s explore the changes that occur as temperatures begin to drop and we prepare to begin the winter season.  

  • October 29, 2021: Creatures of the Night

Humans are diurnal, which means we typically explore our world and local environment during the daytime. Did you know there is a completely different world to explore at night? The darkness invites a wide array of species to come out and play. Let’s discover what the nocturnal world has to offer!

  • November 11, 2021: Time to Move

November is the peak of our migration season. From birds to manatees; come learn all about the temporary residents that make their way to Florida’s warm weather to escape the cold in their local habitats.
