• Policies and Procedures 

Illness Policy

Medication Administration Permission Form

If your child requires emergency, prescription, or over-the-counter medication during camp, a parent/guardian and the child’s physician must complete and submit a Medication Administration Permission Form two weeks prior to your child’s first day of camp.  Any medication for a chronic illness such as asthma, allergies, or diabetes must be accompanied by a Care Plan written and signed by the child’s physician. Upon review of your camper’s forms, it may be necessary to meet with the parent/guardian to develop a Health Plan.

Accommodations for Special Needs

Campers of all abilities are welcome to register for camp. In order to meet our goal of setting all campers up for success, we ask that you please contact us if your child has any special needs of which we should be aware.  We are more than happy to discuss all options available. If your child needs to attend camp with his/her full-time care provider, special arrangements can be made, but must be scheduled several weeks in advance for security purposes.  After undergoing a background check, the adult caregiver may attend at no charge.


Scholarships are available through Denver Zoo’s Access to Awe Scholarship Fund. Please apply for financial assistance when registering online.

Scholarships will only be awarded for one week of camp per child.
