Find exciting summer camps packed with fantastic animal experiences and educational opportunities—available for kids from preschool through 8th grade.
PRESCHOOL – 8TH GRADE
Spend some time Monkeying Around with your primate pals, go for the gold in Animal Olympics, take an African Adventure without leaving Como, or try on the hat of a zookeeper or gardener in Behind-the-Scenes! Como’s camps focus on developing children’s appreciation for the natural world through play and exploration, behind-the-scenes experiences, interactions with zookeepers and gardeners, and up-close encounters with plant and animal ambassadors. Qualified and enthusiastic instructors teach camps for children in preschool through eighth grade. Children are accepted into age-appropriate camps based on the grade they will be entering for the 2019-2020 school year. Join us for half or full-day adventures! Camps are half-day sessions, Monday through Friday. Combine morning and afternoon camps to create a full-day experience. A supervised lunch period is included for full-day campers.

Registrations are taken up to 48 hours prior to the start of the camp. If a camp has not met the participant minimum one week before it is scheduled to start, it will be cancelled.
