North Carolina Zoo Now Offers Virtual Summer Camps


The North Carolina Zoo is bringing its Summer Camps program to you in a new, online format.

In an effort to offer the summer camp experience during this challenging time, the

Zoo’s Virtual Summer Camps are a way for kids to learn about animals and their natural environment in a new way.

Kids will participate in many of the fun activities traditionally found in our camps, just in a virtual setting. Activities such as crafts, animal ambassador encounters, behind the scenes with keepers and games are all part of the fun learning experience.

Zoo camp programs offer a variety of experiences for rising grades 1st through 6th. Each camp is three hours long and has a morning or afternoon option.
