Safari Day Camp at Zoo Atlanta
800 Cherokee Avenue SE, Atlanta
Join us for an exploration of all things wild! From lions to lizards to laughing kookaburras, young explorers will be immersed in hands-on, minds-on learning while having fun. Zoo Atlanta’s Summer Safari Camp is the perfect summer break experience for children ages 5 to 14. Through Zoo explorations, up-close animal encounters, STEAM-based projects, hands-on science activities, environmental games and more, campers learn about attainable strategies and goals to combat environmental issues and are charged with finding simple ways that they can make a difference.
While Zoo Atlanta is a great place to discover nature and wildlife, it is also important that campers have a chance to experience wildlife in a more naturalistic setting. Campers and their Educators may travel out to Grant Park (which surrounds the Zoo) to participate in a variety of activities such as nature walks, environmental research, and group team-building games.
Each week campers embark on a different Zoo expedition. From Marvelous Mimicry to Fantastic Flights, participants will be engaged in ways they can save wildlife and wild places. Select an individual week that fits in your summer plans, or spend the entire summer with us. Extended care hours available. Register today to begin your young explorers’ journey of conservation stewardship!
