Adventure Camps are held throughout the year for ages 6-12. During summer months, we hold camps daily on weekdays. For the winter season, we focus on Anchorage School District in-service days, holidays and days that fall on holiday breaks.

These camps include everything kids love about the zoo - behind-the-scenes adventures with zoo animals, one-on-one time as a group with zookeepers and zoo educators, hands-on projects, take-home items, snacks and lunch at the zoo, time with fellow animal-loving peers and more!

Camp days start at 9am and end promptly at 3pm. We do not offer after-camp care, so we ask authorized adults to pick up campers promptly. Each camp day can be registered for separately or you can sign up for multiple days (or week-long blocks in the summer). The fees are $70 per camper for annual zoo members and $85 per camper for non-members. These fees are per camp day and include all materials, staff time, snacks and lunch. Zoo members do receive the discounted rate!

Please arrive a little before 9am and walk your child into the classroom to check in face-to-face with zoo staff. We will verify authorized adults for picking up campers at that time. We hope you will register your 6-12 year old for camp - they will have a "wild" and fun time with zoo animals!
