John Ball Zoo

Summer Camp

Summer Zoo Camp has been enjoyed by campers for over 25 summers! Kids ages 3 years through going into 9th grade have fun exploring different animal themes in small class sizes. Each class follows a particular theme and instructors plan various activities and tours to bring the class to life. Camp activities may include; games, zoo tours, park exploration, behind-the-scene tours, keeper talks, hands-on animal demonstrations, stories, songs, art projects and more.
