BZ Summer Camp
Bronx Zoo is WILD about summer camp! Our summer camp allows campers to explore our 265-acre zoo and learn about our 10,000 animals like never before! We bring all the fun of Zoo Camp with health and safety as a top priority. This summer, campers in our full day camps will get up close and personal with life-sized dinosaurs and pterosaurs in the Bronx Zoo's Dinosaur Safari!

Participants in this program will spend plenty of time outdoors during a range of weather conditions, including heat, humidity, and precipitation, as well as travel over uneven, natural surfaces. Accommodations may be available. Please contact us for more information.

Due to current NYC mandates, campers age 5 and over are required to provide proof of vaccination for COVID-19. We will follow up with further safety information based on state and local requirements later in the spring.

Extended Care is a great add-on option for caregivers who can't pick their camper up at 3:00pm, allowing caregivers to pick up anytime before 5:00pm. Extended Care includes free play, exhibit visits, and nature play exploration (weather permitting). Add on items like Extended Care and additional camp t-shirts when adding your selected camp purchase to your cart.
