Zoo Camp (Ages 4-16)



Join us for the "WILDEST" time in Toronto. Each summer connect with nature at Zoo Camp, a unique opportunity to explore wildlife from around the world. A variety of themes are offered unique to the Zoo setting including baby animals, careers, adaptations, and more! Adventures include indoor/outdoor activities, behind-the-scenes opportunities, games, crafts, and safe, rewarding FUN!

Zoo Camp is a wild week-long animal adventure where you will:
  • See and learn about hundreds of amazing animals including our polar bears, penguins, white lions, plus our giant pandas!
  • Enjoy exclusive opportunities to meet Zoo keepers and go behind-the-scenes to have close encounters with the animals!

Registration for Zoo Camp takes place ONLINE ONLY and is on a first come, first served basis.

HOW TO REGISTER:

  1. Read the Zoo Camp Information Handbook

  2. Read the Zoo Camp brochure to choose your child's week of camp and age appropriate group. All children must be a minimum of age four by the start of their Zoo Camp week as per the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014.

  3. When registration opens, access the Education Store via this page and login using your Account # (User ID) and password (see instructions in the Education Store if you are unsure of your login details). *Member’s Discount: Your membership number is required to log in and complete the registration process. Please do not create a new account to register if you have an active membership, as the membership discount will not be applied.

  4. Select your camp weeks online and complete the registration fields for each child / camp week, followed by the online camp fees payment (Visa, MasterCard, American Express only). Please note that friend requests to match campers in the same age category are subject to availability. If enrolling with friends please ensure that each child's parent/guardian completes a separate online registration. We cannot hold spaces for friends requests.

  5. A Zoo Camp Additions Registration Form, which will enable you to purchase Before & After Care, the Bagged Lunch option, and the Overnight (Discoverers and Biocamp), will be e-mailed to you upon successful completion of an online registration. Toronto Zoo Education will automatically complete payment for these services by charging the credit card used during the online camp fees purchase.

  6. All registrations will be reviewed. Submission of an online registration does not guarantee placement in the program. Your child's week(s) of camp is only reserved once you receive a confirmation letter from zoocamps@torontozoo.ca. Please set your email filters to accept emails from that address.
