Winter Break Day Camps

Day camps at Oregon Zoo are a great way to connect kids and nature. Campers explore little known areas of the zoo, learn about animals by meeting them face to face and leave inspired to care for the natural world. Each day will feature a unique journey through the zoo in which campers solve quests to unlock the mysteries of the animal kingdom. Each day of camp includes age appropriate games, songs, stories, snacks, an animal visitor, and zoo tour. Children may attend one or more days.
