Here's a look at what we offered in Summer Camp 2015!!!  You do not want to miss out on all the fun adventures in 2016!

Summer Adventure Camps at Your San Antonio Zoo

Ready. Set. Summer Camp!!  Each week of Adventure Camp includes animal encounters, Zoo tours, themed games, projects, and activities in a fun, nature-play based environment.  To provide age appropriate experiences, campers will be grouped based on the grade level they will be entering in the fall.  

Comic Book Capers

It's a bird, it's a plane, no it's...animal super heros!  Together we'll find out which animals have super strength, use super speed, and wear special costumes.  We'll also find ways that we can be super conservation heroes at home!

Animal Investigations

Calling all secret agents!  We need help identifying animals at the Zoo.  Please report to Adventure Camp to accept your mission!

Sailing the Seven Seas

Arrrgh!!!  Get ready for a pirate adventure you'll never forget!  Join us as we set sail for a journey around the globe to search for our favorite animals, discover unfamiliar animals and find Zoo treasure.

Real. Wild. Artist.

Let your creative side go wild as we take our art into the Zoo!  Discover animals and nature through different mediums and methods in this art-themed Adventure Camp.  Families are invited to view Zoo Art at 2:30 p.m. on Friday.

Beyond the Zoo Gate:  Zoo Design

Not your average summer camp!  Meet animals, explore exhibits, talk to our expert staff, and build a Zoo!  We'll work together to design our own Zoo, complete with exhibits, diets, enrichments, guest experiences and everything the animals, workers, and guests need.  Families are invited to explore the camper's custom designed Zoo at 2:30 p.m. Friday afternoon.

Jr. Zoo Crew

Have you dreamed about becoming a zookeeper?  Join us as we explore the many jobs the San Antonio Zoo has to offer.  Help zookeepers clean exhibits and care for animals, learn about enrichment and animal behaviors, and talk with staff about the many different departments at the San Antonio Zoo.
