Insider tips for parents:

  • Food is energy.
    • Make sure to pack a lunch every day (does not apply to Half Day Camp).
    • If your child has dietary needs, prepare your own snack so he/she can stay happy and healthy.
  • The animals are outside.
    • Prepare your child for an outdoor environment.
    • Consider sunscreen and insect repellent.
    • Make sure you label your items with a name!
  • Atlanta gets hot.
    • Pack a water bottle every day, and instruct your child to use it frequently.
  • Accidents happen.
    • If you think that might be true, pack a change of clothes just in case.
  • Age is important.
    • Groups are based on age so everyone can have a good time.
  • Zoo Camp is for kids.
    • Parents can meet and greet at the gate, but the fun is for campers only.
  • Leaving early or running late?
    • Let us know so we can be ready for you (404.624.5822).
