Ever thought about catching some zzzs in the company of zebras? How about snoozing with the snow leopards? Well, dreams come true on the Bronx Zoo’s Family Overnight Safari. After another sold-out series last year, our overnights are back!
The Bronx Zoo offers summer programs for children ages 2-17 years of age. Learn more about our camps and internships, and register online.
Budding zoologists can get an insider’s look at the Zoo’s animals and exhibits by participating in our interactive children’s programs. They’ll meet like-minded kids and experts who’ll offer a glimpse of what would it be like to work at the Bronx Zoo.
Spend a day—or a night—at the Zoo with your children and enjoy private exhibit viewings, themed activities, up-close animal encounters, and special celebrations of Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and other family holidays.
Explore the Bronx Zoo with our helpful, trained guides. Since 1970, the Friends of the Zoo have provided guided tours to groups of schoolchildren, scouts, families, and adults who are interested in learning more about our animals and exhibits.
Whether you are seeking to enrich your students’ field trip to the Zoo or a lesson in your own classroom, the Bronx Zoo’s Education Department offers a wide range of programs to enhance science curricula for kindergarteners through twelfth graders.
The Central Park Zoo’s Wildlife Theater Players perform interactive shows using drama, puppetry, games, and songs. Performances inspire audiences to learn more about their natural world and become part of its protection. The troupe works with schools, community centers, hospitals, camps, and at private events.
