2015 Baltimore Summer Camps / Sessions

The following full-day camp sessions are available:

August 10–14

Grade 2: Zoo Detectives Camp
Each morning, campers will be greeted by a message from one of our Zoo team members with a Zoo Mystery to solve. Campers will then explore the Zoo, play games, and engage their senses to solve the mystery. Along the way they will have opportunities to meet Maryland Zoo Animal Ambassadors and learn about ways they can help protect wild animals. Campers will spend a lot of time walking around the Zoo, experiencing interactive exhibits such as spinning turtle shells, wobbly lily pads, slides, and camel rides. Campers should be prepared to spend a significant amount of time outside in various weather conditions. Due to the young age of the campers, children in the Zoo Detectives Camp will NOT go behind the scenes with any animals.

July 27–31
