Explore your wild side with Camps at The Texas Zoo! Camps are created for children ages 4 to 12 and offered each season. No matter the season, each day of camp is an exploration into the various roles of animal care giving, allowing campers to gain hands on experience with live animals. Spring and Summer Camps are offered as week long camps, and Fall and Winter camps are offered as day camps.
