Henry Vilas Zoo Summer Zoo Camp

Henry Vilas Zoo

Come and spend the summer at our inquiry-focused Summer Zoo Camp! With different fun, themes throughout the summer, campers enjoy special animal experiences and behind-the-scenes opportunities, while facing scientific challenges that put the campers in the shoes of keepers, vets, or zoo administrators and motivate campers to seek the information to solve real-life problems. In alignment with the Next Generation Science Standards, campers engage in the scientific process of observation, scientific reasoning, and engineering design to build solutions to real-life problems. Campers leave Zoo Camp with a greater awareness for the individual animals at the zoo and how to help animals in the wild, all while building their science skills and making new friends.
