Zoo Camp at Brookfield Zoo

Celebrate animals at Brookfield Zoo when you hop like a wallaby at the HAMILL FAMILY WILD ENCOUNTERS and take a spin on THE CAROUSEL! Each week of Camp is an exciting adventure into the wild world of animals! Your Camp counselors will be your expert safari guides as you and your friends explore animals from all over the world. You will take a tour on the MOTOR SAFARI, get crafty at the HAMILL FAMILY PLAY ZOO, see how high a dolphin can jump at DOLPHINS IN ACTION, and so much more!

Zoo Camp For All! Inclusion at Zoo Camp

At Zoo Camp, we remove barriers so all children can participate, regardless of ability. This means that children with and without disabilities and special needs are participating together in camp activities. Zoo Camp provides reasonable accommodations so activities can be adapted to individual needs and abilities. We are pleased to have an Inclusion Specialist on our staff whose role is to support our Counselor staff in providing inclusive experiences and making sure the Zoo is for all campers! Click here to get to know our Camp Leadership team, including our Inclusion Specialist. We also welcome you and your family to Early Check In Day on May 19 where you can meet Camp staff and get ready for your camper's first day at Zoo Camp.

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 Disability/Special Needs 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.
