Registration begins March 2 for summer camps at Lincoln Park Zoo!

Children in grades PreK-4 can sign up for Summer Conservation Camp, where campers will join zoo educators and adventure through the amazing world of animals, exploring one of five themes each week designed to inspire a love of wildlife and curiosity about the natural world. Cost is $400 per camper/per week for non-members, $340 for zoo members. Scholarships available.

Children in grades 5-8 can sign up for Summer Zoo Crew, a two-week summer experience! Through team-building and immersive learning, campers will explore the relationships between animals, humans, and ecosystems. They will meet zoo scientists and zookeepers, go on field trips, sleep over at the zoo, and ultimately develop a project to raise awareness about a conservation issue that is important to them. Cost is $900 per camper/per two-week camp for non-members, $765 for zoo members. Scholarships available.

All summer camps are held 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. daily from June 20 – August 26. In order to provide a safe space not only for our staff and guests, but the animals in our care, all eligible campers are required to be vaccinated for COVID-19 before attending.
