What People Are Saying

"You have created so many magical moments for my daughter! She LOVED (that might be an understatement) Summer Safari so much that we knew she would be over the moon excited for Fall Safari. You did not disappoint! She learns so much while she is with you, makes incredible connections with other campers, adores your staff, and is captivated by the animals! As a family, we come to the zoo probably twice per month and since participating in Safari Camps, she is teaching us all sorts of new things that we didn’t know or see before! Thank you so much for all of your hard work, and see you next month!"

"The curriculum is great. My kids learned so much this year about the animals at the zoo and most importantly about conservation work. They love being able to share how to better take care of our earth so that we can take care of all the animals. They especially loved the meet and greets with animals, something we don't experience on our own at the zoo."

"My son came home every day brimming over with new information and genuinely excited about what he had learned during the day. The counselors did an excellent job getting to know the kids right away too."

"Great staff! Great learning experience! My daughter is always proud to share what she learned, who she met (loves the sand boa!!), and what we can do to make the world better for the animals and us!"

"My daughter absolutely loved it! I think the enthusiasm from the staff really helped to set a positive welcoming tone. She talked about all the different animals, their habitats, and the special treats of getting to ride the train and the carousel!"
