Zoo Camp Scholarships

Kids smiling in zoo camp.Our award-winning Zoo Camp program has enriched the lives of generations of children, and many campers return to us as Camp counselors or CITs (counselors-in-training). However, there are many children in the Santa Barbara area who are missing out on this incredible experience simply because they cannot afford it.

You can help these children by donating to our Zoo Camp Scholarship Fund. With your help, children who could not otherwise afford the tuition can attend a weeklong session of Zoo Camp and learn about the wonderful world of animals and nature in a fun, safe, and educational environment. We are fortunate in having caring community supporters for this program, and their contributions have given many children the opportunity to experience Zoo Camp. However, more help is needed if we are to reach our goal of sending 150 disadvantaged, low-income children to the best summer camp in town (The Independent "Best Of" awards: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010).
