Zoo Camp


Summer Camp at Assiniboine Park Zoo is perfect for children 5 to 12 years of age who love animals, nature, art, and spending time outdoors. Campers will enjoy fun-filled summer days exploring the Park and Zoo, and learning about animals and nature while making new friends. Daily activities include a hands-on animal experience and a trip to either the Polar Playground at the Zoo or the Nature Playground in the Park. Each week, campers will also enjoy a behind the scenes Zoo experience, discover the benefits of animal enrichment, and have a private chat with a zookeeper and venture out into Assiniboine Park to explore the gardens, forests, Riley Family Duck Pond, and other attractions.

Weekly camps in July and August alternate between two themes.

  • The Secret Life of Zoos (Weeks 1, 3, 5, 7, 9)
