Detroit Zoo's Summer Safari camps for kids start June 24

ROYAL OAK, Mich., May 23, 2013 – The Detroit Zoo is offering a lineup of new and past-favorite Summer Safari camps to keep kids occupied all summer long. From June 24 through Aug. 16, 2013, children ages 4 to 12 can explore the wonders of nature and wildlife with tours of the Zoo, hands-on activities, games and crafts.

Parents can choose from a variety of weeklong half-day and weeklong full-day sessions geared toward specific age groups. Weeklong morning and afternoon sessions can be paired for full-day experiences.

Prices for the Summer Safari camp sessions range from $130 to $250 for Detroit Zoological Society members and $140 to $270 for non-members.

Busy parents can drop daytime campers off early or pick them up late to enjoy before- and after-camp activities. Early Bird drop-off starts at 7:30 a.m. and Late Owl pick-up runs until 5:30 p.m. Costs range from $6 for a single session to $60 for Monday through Friday mornings and afternoons.
