Zoo Camps

2018 Planning Guide

We are excited to introduce new Zoo Camp at the Birmingham Zoo!  Our camps have always been amazing, but this year we have revamped the program to include even more hands-on science, nature play, conservation and ‘zoo-learning’!  Our camps are educational and encourage active learning through games, crafts, age-appropriate explorations, and special encounters with a variety of our resident animals. Rich in STEM-based explorations, these camps engage the natural curiosity of a child and allow ample opportunity to practice critical emerging science skills.  Learning has never been so much FUN!

Allergy Information

The Birmingham Zoo is a facility that uses nuts and nut products for animal diet purposes. Traces of nuts or nut products may be found in areas where animal feedings are conducted and areas where Programs and Educational animal demonstrations are performed. The safety of our guests remains a top priority and the Zoo takes precautions to provide a safe environment.

In the Education Programs Department, safety precautions include:

  • Teachers are trained to recognize the physical characteristics that indicate an allergic reaction is occurring and proper responses to take when a student has a reaction.
  • Teachers are trained to properly use EpiPen.
  • Teachers will not offer students any food containing nuts or nut products and all students will be discouraged from bringing snacks/lunches containing nuts or nut products.
  • Teachers will ensure that no nuts or nut products are used as any part of class activities (not involving a live animal demonstrations).

For the safety of those who suffer severe nut allergies, parents of children who attend ZooFari Summer Camps are discouraged from sending snacks or lunches with foods that contain or may contain peanuts or tree nuts.
