Winter Session

Come bundle up with the animals this winter break! Winter Safari Day Camp offers daily camps that bring out the animal in us all, through hands-on learning, nature discovery and wildlife appreciation.

Held during school breaks throughout the year (kindergarten – 5th grade), Safari Day Camps provide a fun and exciting opportunity to learn about animals and nature in a spectacular outdoor environment.

Along with so many unique activities that captivate and teach your children, Zoo Atlanta has years of experience in offering outstanding educational programs and has a reputation as one of the city’s most prized and trusted organizations.

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