Camp Zoofari Scholarships
The Houston Zoo is offering an exciting summer camp experience through Camp Zoofari Scholarships. Houston Zoo reserves spaces for children to participate in Camp Zoofari free of charge to camps in July and August. Most scholarships are offered to campers ages 8-16; very limited scholarships are offered to ages 4-7 or the month of June. To complete a scholarship application, the camper’s legal guardian and one teacher must both complete scholarship applications using the links below. Incomplete applications are not considered.
The final date to apply for a scholarship (both parent/guardian and teacher) is March 21.
Scholarship notifications will be sent out by April 17 by email to the address provided in the parent/guardian application. Scholarship recipients receive a camp spot and two complimentary t-shirts for the week. Please note that scholarship recipients will still need to provide immunization records, their own lunch and transportation to and from the Houston Zoo.
Upon notification of scholarship award, recipients must complete an online registration by May 1 and agree to all camp policies. When registering, a deposit of $20 is required, which is refunded upon the completion of camp. Any unclaimed scholarship spots on May 2 will be put on sale for the public.
An application is not considered complete until both the parent and teacher portions are submitted.
Please fill out the supplemental survey, which should take about 10-15 minutes:
