January is just beginning, but summer will be here before we know it—along with summer camps at Lincoln Park Zoo.
Through the seasonal program, pre-kindergarten through eighth-grade students can explore animal diversity and learn about conservation and care in the zoo's living classroom.
Space can fill up quickly, so you'll need to act fast to ensure a wild summer for your kids. Donor Club and Safari and Zoologist-level members enjoy priority registration for zoo summer camps. Not at that giving level? Upgrade today to secure a spot before registration opens to everyone!
