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.
