Summer Opportunities at the Toledo Zoo

Posted May 8th, 2018 by Shayla Moriarty  Category: Community Interest, General News,


TOLEDO, Ohio — Summer vacation means Toledo Zoo Summer Safari Camps sponsored by Toby & Sue Cardone and the Cardone Financial Group. These affordably priced week-long day camps offer campers ages four to 15 an opportunity to enjoy the Zoo in the wildest of ways!

This year’s camp topics range from competing in Zoo Olympics and learning all about baby animals in Born to be Wild to becoming an Animal Detective or fishing in local ponds! Older kids (ages 11-15) can spend time working as Junior Zookeepers or even venture out with Zoo biologists for a hands-on project in Conservation Explorers.

Camps begin June 4 and run through August 17. Most camps run 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Please check for details. Children may be signed up for one or more camps. Zoo member discounts apply.

The fun isn’t just for the kids, though. Zoo Snoozes invite the entire family to camp overnight at the Zoo with children ages six and older. This nocturnal experience includes animal interaction, keeper talks, exclusive tours, delicious meals and more. Sleeping accommodations vary by date; locations include the Forest Room of the award-winning Nature’s Neighborhood, the Aquarium and the Hippoquarium®. Each Snooze has a theme that guides the animal interactions, tours and more.
