Explore the Zoo, meet the animals, learn amazing things and make new friends at Camp KangaZoo! Come year after year and learn something new each time. Campers are divided into age-specific groups for most activities, and are together each day for an introduction, lunch and snack. A detailed information packet will be sent in the spring.

Once again campers can double their Camp fun. Choose Super Survivors or Zoo Adventure or register for BOTH!

In Super Survivors,campers will explore the weird and wonderful characteristics of animals that help them survive in the wild. We’ll focus on animal defenses, senses, communication and search out some native creatures to see how they survive in their Missouri habitat. Campers will discover some animal super powers, and will discover the superhero within themselves with the power to help animals around the world. You can count on engaging hands-on activities, outdoor games, tours, lots of animal observation, and all of the things that make Zoo Camp great!

In Zoo Adventure, campers will trek to a different area of the Zoo each day as they search for a special mystery animal. They’ll soon discover that what they see from the Zoo path is only a tiny glimpse of our Zoo animals’ stories. They’ll learn all about what animals need in the wild, and how we care for animals at the Zoo and around the world. Join the adventure and discover a side of the Zoo you never knew, all to the tune of active games, crafts, tours, and visits with our amazing Zoo animals.

  • Learn all about animals and the Zoo
  • Explore animal habits and habitats
  • See and touch live animals in our classrooms
  • Find out how you can help animals
