Preschool ZooCamp is designed for our younger friends. Children must be four or five years old by the start of camp, or entering kindergarten in fall 2018. Each day of ZooCamp revolves around an animal-themed story and includes a craft, a snack, an upclose look at one of our animals, and a short walk into the zoo.
