T-Shirts serve as camper nametags and enable instructors to keep campers together while walking throughout the Zoo. Shirts will be distributed on the first day of camp.

Snacks and Food Allergies

We cannot guarantee a nut-free environment at the Zoo as guest often bring their own food items containing nuts, and nuts are a regular part of our animal diets. Please disclose all participant food allergies during registration.

Lunch and Snacks

Nutritious snacks are provided in the morning and afternoon. Optional Lunch Meal plan can be added for $20.00 (for the 4 day camp). Otherwise parents need to pack a sack lunch for your child. If your child has any dietary restrictions a sack lunch should be provided for your child.

Medication Needs During Summer Zoo Camp

Camp Instructors do not administer medication. If your child has special medication needs you will need to make plans accordingly.

Medical Procedures

First aid will be administered to campers with minor scrapes, cuts, bumps, and insect bites by our first aid staff.

Behavioral Expectations

All campers are expected to behave in a safe, respectful and courteous manner. In the event of behavioral concerns, corrective measures such as temporarily removing the disruptive camper from the group and/or consulting a parent/guardian may be used. Should a camper’s behavior become a major distraction or is dangerous to others, the camper will be removed from camp and a parent/guardian will be notified immediately. The Wildwood Wildlife Park staff reserves the right to remove a camper from camp at any time.
