No School? Come to zoo camp! Your camper can join us for a day full of hands-on activities, animal investigations and wild encounters.
1 Day Camps
Every day, animals face challenges in the wild and it’s up to you to tinker, design, and create something great to help them. During this camp, you will meet animals up close and use everyday materials in exciting ways and through open-ended exploration and experimentation find creative solutions to some real world concerns about the animals in our care.
We’ve heard the legend of the Loch Ness and tales of the cry of the Banshee, but where do these myths come from? In this camp you’ll have a chance to meet some animals who have inspired myths and legends throughout the world! Through up close animal encounters, crafts and story-telling, you will help build on the legends!
Come explore indigenous myths and legends of the animal kingdom! In this one-day camp, we'll be learning about the traditional stories and folklore of indigenous cultures from North America. We’ll be celebrating our animals, meeting some up close, acknowledging the Indigenous caretakers of these lands, and their incredible stories.

Campaign for Wildlife
Are you passionate about helping wild animals? Join us at the Prospect Park Zoo for this one day camp to learn about what WCS does to protect wild animals and how you can too. You’ll meet animals up close, explore the zoo, and help create a campaign to educate zoo visitors on what they can do to protect wildlife near and far!
Like to watch cool animal videos? Want to make one of your own? This week is your chance to create your own awesome animal videos as we work on teams to plan, film, and create some short clips that we'll share with caregivers on our final day.
