Adventure. Education. Fun.


The Alaska Zoo Education Department strives to provide adventurous, fun and educational day camps for children ages 6-12 from 9:00am to 3:00pm. Each camp has a different topic with a wildlife or habitat conservation focus, delivered to campers through behind-the-scenes encounters, talks with zoo staff, inside stories, hands-on projects, animal enrichment and time spent in our "outdoor classroom" and Gateway classroom.

Summer 2019 camps are open for online registration. Camps are held on Anchorage School District in-service days and holiday breaks. View our schedule!
