Cultivate curiosity, exploration, and discovery with a gift. Watch the children in your life fall in love with the natural world.
Parents, take the evening off while your kids take over the Zoo and enjoy dinner, s’mores, special animal encounters, and more fun activities.
Going on safari doesn’t have to mean spending a lot of money, packing a lot of gear, or traveling internationally.
Do you have an interest in animals and the environment? Do you have the desire and ability to teach others?
Santa Barbara Zoo’s camps offer children ages 3–12 the opportunity to explore animals and science in a safe, beautiful environment.
Join our hands-on, experiential program for early education learners (ages 3-5) and homeschool students (ages 3-15).
