School may be out, but Camp is definitely in! Zoo Atlanta offers a fun and exciting day of learning for your children even when school is not in session. See our School’s Out Safari Day Camp dates below!

    • Prepare your child for an outdoor environment.
    • Consider appropriate outerwear and pack a water bottle!
    • Make sure you label your items with a name!

    • If you think that might be true, pack a change of clothes just in case.
