Zoo Camps

Nashville Zoo currently offers camp opportunities for members and the community. 

Each year Nashville Zoo offers eight exciting weeks of summer camp for youth ages 4 through 14! Zooper Heroes Camp is a day camp designed specifically for children with special needs that benefit from additional support. Veterinary Camp is a two-day fall break camp for teens interested in pursuing a career in zoo veterinary science.


Summer Camps

Summer Camp is back in 2017 with new themes and new fun! Campers ages 4 to 14 can join us for day camps full of Zoo favorites and new adventures.

Most camps run from 9am to 3pm each day, with before-care available starting at 7:30am and after-care available until 5:30pm for an extra fee.

Registration will open for members February 22 around 10am, and for non-members on March 2.
