Come join us at the zoo for a week long summer camp! The Monterey Zoo summer camp encourages young people to appreciate and gain a better understanding of wildlife through direct interaction with the animals as well as games, arts and crafts, lectures, demonstrations and other exciting activities. All campers receive a camp T-shirt and individual photograph with a very special and very large zoo animal. Camp is designed for children between the ages of 7-12, and runs daily for a week, 10:0 0 AM – 3:00 PM.
This year’s camp dates are Monday thru Friday ~ June 17-21, July 8-12 and July 22-26 of 2024.
Roar and Smores ~ Dinner and Campfire
Add another layer of excitement to your child’s week long zoo adventure. Roar and Smores gives kids and their family the opportunity to enjoy some evening time “together” at the zoo. All experience a nocturnal flashlight safari, a campfire dinner with the zoo staff, games and fireside snack as well participating in our Crunch Time Big Cat feeding tour and our Rhino Bedtime. Roar and Smores dates typically happen the Friday night of each camp week if enough participants sign up for the activity. This is not a sleep-over, children do go home after this event. Our goal is for this event to be one that parents will share and enjoy ~ with their kids. We do our best to make it enjoyable by all.
AND BEARS… AND YOU!
