Yes, summer zoo camp sessions fill up quickly. We encourage you register as quickly as possible. However if the session you are interested is full we would be happy to put you on awaiting list.
Camp is designed to be a full week experience. If you are unable to attend a full week, camp is still full cost.
No, unfortunately each week and each session is specifically tailored toward a certain age group. Our age restrictions ensure that we focus on appropriate subject matter and activities.
Unfortunately, as much as we would love to have you participate, our space is limited and camp is for children only.
The Education Department hires and trains four seasonal camp counselors. Each counselor goes through background and drug testing; as well as CPR and First Aid Certification training. Counselors have a background in animal care, child care, education, natural sciences, and or environmental studies.
The Cape May County Park and Zoo tries to meet the needs of as many children as possible. Our zoo camp program is geared for children to engage in group activities that include “live” animal interaction, as well as interaction with children of the same age group. We do not have trained staff or have extra personnel available for children with special needs. Please contact the Education Department before the start of camp about your special needs child to discuss any concerns and to see if Zoo Camp is an appropriate environment for your child.
No,unfortunately only pre-registered campers can attend. If you know anyone interested in Zoo Camp please tell them to contact our Education Department prior to the start of camp.
