Join us for an exploration of all things WILD!

From pandas to parrots to pine snakes, young explorers will be immersed in hands-on, minds-on learning while having fun! Zoo Atlanta’s Safari Camp: Summer Session is the perfect summer break experience for children ages 5 to 14. Select an individual week that fits in your summer plans, or spend the entire summer with us.

Each week campers embark on a different Zoo expedition, exploring wildlife and wild places. From Movin’ and Groovin’ to Zoo’s Clues, participants will be engaged in ways they can save wildlife and wild places.

May 30 – August 4, 2023

Safari Camp hours are 9 a.m.–4 p.m. (Drop-off starts 8:30 a.m.)
Extended care available for $75 per week from 8 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. – 5 p.m.

Safari Camp is a great opportunity to engage young explorers about the wild world around them and begin their journey of conservation stewardship. Through Zoo explorations, up-close animal encounters, STEAM-based projects, hands-on science activities, environmental games and more, campers learn about attainable strategies and goals to combat environmental issues and are charged with finding simple ways that they can make a difference.

While Zoo Atlanta is a great place to discover nature and wildlife, it is also important that campers have a chance to experience wildlife in a more naturalistic setting. Campers may travel out to Grant Park (which surrounds the Zoo) to participate in a variety of activities such as nature walks, environmental research, and group team-building games. You will be notified during the welcome email prior to the beginning of the Camp week to inform you of whether this experience will a part of your camper’s schedule.
