When school’s out, Zoo Camp is IN! Nowhere else on the First Coast can your child spend the day nose-to-nose with an elephant, toe-to-toe with a flamingo, neck-to-neck with a giraffe, eye-to-eye with an anaconda or shoulder-to-shoulder with a gorilla! All of our programs include Zoo tours, activities & games, crafts and hands-on encounters with animals everyday. Members of the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens receive discounts on Education Programs and FREE admission every time they visit. Become a Member today and take advantage of the discount right away!

Zoo Camp runs year round - Spring, Summer, Winter, and School Holidays!

Halloween is a time for creepy creatures, gruesome get-ups, and of course, tasty treats! But it’s not just candy and chocolate here at the Zoo – the animals also get some fun fall snacks. Come spend a day at Spooktacular Camp learning about the foods that wildlife and people can enjoy in the autumn and all year long. Camp sessions will be held for elementary-age children on Friday, October 20; Saturday, October 21; and Saturday, October 28.
