In addition to discounts off of all zoo camp registrations, members will receive early registration beginning February 14th. Registration will open for non-members on March 1st.
If you are interested in registering for a zoo camp session, please email the Education Department at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your slot. Once your slot has been saved, please download the registration form and e-mail or mail it to the address found at the bottom of the form, along with a $50 deposit payment. This deposit MUST be received no later than 2 weeks after registering and will be deducted from your final zoo camp payment. If the deposit fee is not received within two weeks after registering, your reservation(s) will be cancelled. The ages of the camps are determined by what grade they will be entering in the Fall. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis, with limited space available per session.
Pre-registration for all zoo camps is required!
If you need to cancel your reservation for any reason, we must be contacted at least 30 days prior to the camp start date in order to receive your full refund. If you cancel less than 30 days in advance, your registration fee and/or deposit is non-refundable, unless the class is cancelled by zoo staff. Please notify zoo camp staff if your child will be unable to attend, is arriving late, or leaving early on any particular day of zoo camp.
The Utica Zoo now offers extended care before and after zoo camp hours. Before care begins at 7:45 am and is available for all zoo camps.
