Detroit Zoo’s Summer Safari camps start June 22

May 28, 2015

 

Kids can get out of the house and into the wild this summer with Summer Safari camps at the Detroit Zoo.  From June 22 through Aug. 14, 2015, children in kindergarten through eighth grade will discover the wonders of nature and wildlife through hands-on activities, games and crafts.  

Zookeeper Camps familiarize campers with the knowledge and skills required to be a zookeeper and provide the opportunity to learn about animal health, behavior, nutrition and welfare.  Eco Camps allow campers to explore the role they can play in conservation, from helping animals in their own backyard to saving endangered species around the world.

In addition to the daytime camps, Twilight Trails Evening Camps for students in first through sixth grade give campers the opportunity to explore the Detroit Zoo after it closes for the evening.  

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 6 p.m.
