Things To Know


Spring Camp Schedule and Themes

Spring Camp Get Ready for Spring Camp!

✔ Medical Waiver (Required) This document is required in order for your child to come to Camp. This online form must be completed during registration. Please have your child's medical information handy, including information about:

✔ Allergies
✔ Medications
✔ Immunizations
✔ Special needs


✔ Disability/Special Needs Questionnaire (Optional) If your child has a disability or special need, we encourage you to complete the Disability/Special Needs Questionnaire. We are committed to ensuring that your child has the best possible experience while at Zoo Camp and you can help us accomplish this. Upon completing registration, you will be sent a link to our Questionnaire. Please fill out as much or as little of this form as you’d like. This form is meant to help us individualize the supports or accommodations your child may need at Zoo Camp. If you choose to complete this form, please submit it at least one week prior to your child’s first day of Zoo Camp so we may plan our staff training and resources accordingly. 

✔ Parent Packet Your resource for all things Zoo Camp! This comprehensive packet includes everything you need to know to prepare for Zoo Camp: what to bring, how to dress, where to go, and more! You will receive this packet via e-mail about one week before the start of your camp session.

Spring Camp Rescheduling, Cancellation, and Refund Policies

Rescheduling: Campers may be rescheduled to a different camp session, presuming available space, with a $10 processing fee per child, per session. Please keep in mind that camps fill quickly and we may not always be able to accommodate rescheduling your camper to another session. In that case, please refer to the cancellation policy. After March 11, 2019, refunds and rescheduling are no longer possible.

Cancellations and Refunds: We require that ALL cancellations must be in writing; please send an email to adventuresinlearning@CZS.org. Zoo Camp registration fees (not including the 25% nonrefundable deposit or processing fee) can be refunded if cancellations are requested at least 14 days prior to the start of Spring Camp. Refunds and rescheduling are no longer possible within 14 days of the start of Spring Camp. If a late cancellation is due to a medical emergency, a written, physician-authorized note is required before a refund can be issued. This policy is in effect for any and all sessions of Zoo Camp. Zoo Camp participants that do not show up for their registered session will not be granted a refund or be rescheduled. If participants leave early on one or more Zoo Camp days, they will not receive a refund. To reschedule your camp session, please send an email with your request to adventuresinlearning@CZS.org.
