Spring Break Session

Send your young explorer on a “discovery staycation” at Zoo Atlanta! Campers will explore nature’s rebirth in a program that combines fun and learning in a living laboratory setting! Each day participants are immersed in learning about animals from around the world, exploring the environment, and engaging in ways they can conserve nature through unique hands-on, minds-on activities.

Zoo Atlanta offers a daily themed Camp that creates a greater connection to wildlife and wild places.

To find out if our Safari Day Camps are a good fit for you and your camper, please read our Parent Information Packet (PDF) prior to registering.

Inspired by Nature – April 1-5

Have you ever thought about where the design for Velcro came from? Or what flamingos and water filters have in common? There’s a good chance that the objects that you use daily were inspired by something in nature. Using animals as inspiration, campers will spend the week designing products that could have real-world applications and can hopefully lead to a more sustainable future.

Safari Camp is a great opportunity to engage young explorers about the wild world around them and begin their journey of conservation stewardship. Through Zoo explorations, up-close animal encounters, STEAM based projects, hands-on science activities, environmental games and more, campers learn about attainable strategies and goals to combat environmental issues and are charged with finding simple ways that they can make a difference.

While Zoo Atlanta is a great place to discover nature and wildlife, it is also important that campers have a chance to experience wildlife in a more naturalistic setting. Campers may travel out to Grant Park (which surrounds the Zoo) to participate in a variety of activities such as nature walks, environmental research and group team-building games. You will be notified during the welcome email prior to the beginning of the camp day/week to inform you of whether this experience will a part of your camper’s schedule.
