    Information on the San Diego Zoo's 2023 Summer Camp program is coming soon! Watch this page for complete details as they become available.



    In our summer adventures, campers get outside to explore habitats, discover wildlife, connect with friends, and create new memories. Led by experienced educators, campers learn about wildlife conservation, how to be an ally for wildlife, and have an amazing amount of fun!


    Explore the wonderful world of wildlife through our Classic Camp adventures, with a variety of programs available for youngsters who will be entering Kindergarten through Grade 8 in the fall. We also offer Art Camps, with the Little Artists program for campers entering Grades 1 through 3 in the fall, and the Adventures in Art program for campers entering Grades 4 through 12.


    Safety for our campers, staff, plants, and animals continues to be our top priority. We have implemented safety protocols aligned with San Diego County, the State of California Social Services Department, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. All staff and campers are required to follow the recommended guidelines set forth by the county and state.


    If your desired camp is not available, please check back periodically for availability. Unfortunately, we are not able to take a camp wait list.


    We're looking forward to welcoming our campers back!
