Extended Day is an additional option for summer camp only. Campers can arrive as early as 8:00 a.m. and stay until 5:00 p.m. This time is spent with camp counselors in small groups, similar to the Standard camp day. No Extended Day option is available for Winter or Spring Zoo Camps.
Morning Extended Day is supervised by camp counselors and is usually spent on the playground. There will be additional educational activities, crafts, and animal encounters during afternoon Extended Day, but it is less structured than the Standard camp day.
Extended Day can only be purchased by the week, and is available for Summer Zoo Camp only.
Zoo Members: $60/week additional
Non-members: $70/week additional
Where do I sign my camper in and out for extended day?
Extended Day sign in and out occur at the front entrance to the Zoo, at the large electric gate to the right of the main entrance. Morning sign in runs from 7:45 - 8:00 a.m. and afternoon sign out runs from 4:30 - 5:00 p.m.
What happens if I arrive in the morning after Extended Day sign-in, but before Standard Day camp sign-in?
If you arrive after 8:30 a.m., you will have to wait until Standard Day camp sign-in begins at 9:00 a.m. to sign in your camper. We appreciate your cooperation.
What happens if I need to pick my child up early from Extended Day?
If you would like to pick up your child before 4:30 p.m., please check in at the front gate. They will direct you to the Education Office, located at the top of the hill. You will sign your child out in the office, and your child will be brought to meet you once they are signed out. Please note that this process does take at least 15 minutes. We appreciate your patience and cooperation.
