Austin Zoo Summer Camp 2020

Do you know a kid who is wild about animals? Sign them up for Austin Zoo Summer Camp! We’ll be exploring the wonders of the animal kingdom through animal ambassador encounters, interactive play, scientific experiments, games, and crafts! Registration fees include one bag of animal feed, one train ride, and one Summer Zoo Camp T-shirt each week. All campers will need to bring their own water bottles, snacks and lunch daily.
