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.

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.
