Bring The Zoo to You - Outreach Enrichment and Afterschool Programs

Denver Zoo offers unique experiences for youth enrolled in programs outside of the normal school day.  These experiences are ideal for youth enrolled in extended day or afterschool programs, summer camps, and community center or library programming.  Our programs can run for multiple days per week. We work with larger group sizes, mixed ages, and incorporate active and extended learning experiences.  

For our extended learning experiences, please visit our STEM Multi-contact Enrichment Programs Page (Ages 3 – 11).
For one-time programming for a mixed-age group larger than 30 participants, please visit our Assemblies Page (Ages 5 – Adult).
For one-time programming for a group of less than 30 participants, please see below.
