Zoo Camps

Zoo Camps

Zoo Camps at the Birmingham Zoo are educational and encourage active learning through games, age-appropriate, hands-on science, animal encounters, and nature play for students ages Kindergarten up to 12th grade! Rich in STEM-based explorations, these camps engage the natural curiosity of a child and allow ample opportunity to practice critical emerging science skills. Zoo Camp is a great way to experience all the Zoo has to offer, while engaging campers in age-appropriate content geared toward our mission of inspiring passion to conserve the natural world. Learning has never been so WILD!
