The Houston Zoo is offering an exciting summer camp experience for a select number of Houston’s children. Throughout the summer, the Houston Zoo will make available 200 spaces for children to participate in Camp Zoofari free of charge. This camp includes two complimentary t-shirts for the week.  Please note that scholarship recipients will still need to provide their own lunch and transportation to and from the Houston Zoo.
