Summer Camp 2021

Program Description

In-person summer camp is BACK at the Buffalo Zoo!  Join us for a wild, week-long, half-day camp experience like no other.  Campers will learn and discover through visits to animal habitats, up close animal encounters, crafts, art, nature play, and more!

 

This year’s summer camp will be subject to Covid-19 restrictions that are currently in place at the time of each weekly camp.  Those guidelines and restrictions will be communicated as your scheduled camp week approaches.  We will follow all New York state summer camp guidelines including, but not limited to, reduced camp enrollment with social distancing, and separately defined spaces for campers with 8 in each group.

All guests are required to have their temperature checked before they enter the Zoo. Any guest with a body temperature of 100.4 degrees or above will not be permitted to enter the Zoo. During all programs and Zoo visits, we require the use of face masks/coverings at all times for all guests ages 2 and up. 

In the event of unforeseen changes with the pandemic, the Buffalo Zoo reserves the right to alter or cancel Summer Camp.
