Bronx Zoo is WILD about summer camp! Our new 10-day summer camp allows campers to explore our 265-acre zoo and learn about our 8,000 animals like never before! This small-group experience brings all the fun of Zoo Camp with health and safety as a top priority.
Scroll down for our schedule and camp descriptions! These in-person camps run from 9:00a - 3:00p Monday - Friday each week unless otherwise noted.
What animal can outlast them all? Maybe the top Animal Survivor needs the speed of a cheetah, the night vision of an owl, and the jaws of a crocodile! Your camper will learn about what makes animals super survivors through games and activities, up-close animal encounters, exhibit visits, and nature exploration. Campers will put learning into action by designing their very own Animal Survivor that can live anywhere!
What do bird wings and jet engines have in common? Let your young scientist's imagination run wild this summer with bioinspiration as they explore wildlife and habitats from all around the world. Through exhibit visits, animal demonstrations, activities, and nature exploration, your camper will learn how nature has inspired structures, materials, and inventions!
Does your young influencer-in-training want to save wildlife and encourage others to help? Explore how WCS scientists, artists, and exhibit designers inspire a movement of wildlife champions. Through animal encounters, exhibit visits, media, art, and design, your camper will learn how to be a champion for conservation and inspire others to join them!
