Virtual Break Camp Programs 
For Students in Grades 1- 5  

When school is on break, you can spend the day with the Saint Louis Zoo! Our virtual Break Camps will bring the Zoo right to you. Join our live Zoom based Camp educators to learn about animals and conservation. Each camp day will have 3 hours of live crafts, games, songs, and (of course) ANIMALS! We will also include a detailed materials list as well as follow up activities for your camper to do in the afternoon or evening.   See also, terms and conditions and registration information.
