Go Wild With Us!

The Minnesota Zoo’s summer camps are entertaining, educational, and unforgettable! Participants enjoy and engage in activities and learning about the diversity of life in their specific theme-based camp. Many camps will have the opportunity to attend the Wings Financial World of Birds Show, visit Kangaroo Crossing, view live animals up close, and explore the Minnesota Zoo’s award-winning exhibits!zoo-camp-catalog-cover

As you look over the Zoo Camp information, please remember to register your child for the grade they will be entering in the Fall of 2017. All camps are child-only with the exception of Toddler Time and the Adult Camps.

Friendly Tip!  Registration will work best on a computer; some functionality may not appear on mobile devices.

Registration only takes place online and full payment is due immediately. In order to receive the member rate, your Zoo membership must be current (not elapsed) at the time of registration. Current members must use their existing web login email to receive the membership discount.

Registration requires signing legal waivers for each camper. Members may only register and sign for campers covered by their membership.

Online registration opens on the following dates and times:
January 23 at 10 am: Director’s Circle Donors ($1,000+)

For those registering on February 1, an online waiting room will be available starting at 9:45 am. If you sign on before 10 am, once registration opens at 10 am, your spot in line will be randomly generated. If you sign on after 10 am, registration will be on a first-come first-served basis.
