Zoo Camps

Let your child spend some time on the wild side!

We welcome your child to the award-winning camps at the Santa Barbara Zoo! What will your child discover? Every day, your child will participate in one or more of the following activities:

  • Animal Encounters
  • Train Rides
  • Crafts
  • Science Activities
  • Zoo Tours
  • Songs

       ...and more fun surprises!

Santa Barbara Zoo's camps offer children ages 3 - 12 the opportunity to explore animals and science in a safe, beautiful environment. There are three camps available seasonally, including Spring, Summer, and Winter Zoo Camps. All camps have a lunch option available, and Summer Zoo Camp offers an extended day care option.
