Send a Kid to Camp at the Houston Zoo
Make a Child’s Summer Camp Wishes Come True
Each year, hundreds of children who wish to take part in Camp Zoofari are unable to do so because of financial circumstances. Your gift to the Camp Zoofari Scholarship Fund helps kids, who are otherwise unable to attend, enjoy an action-packed week of wild fun and learning. Through generous community support, the Houston Zoo is able to set aside 200 spots in Camp Zoofari every summer for underserved children in our area, giving them an unforgettable opportunity to learn about animals, their habitats, and how to protect them in the wild.
Your Gift Has an Impact
The gift you give today – no matter the amount – provides summer smiles and lasting memories for our campers while helping inspire each child to become a good steward of the natural world.

An Experience Like No Other
Camp Zoofari scholarships allow enthusiastic young learners ages 4 to 12 to study nature, wildlife conservation, and the animals that call the Houston Zoo home.
In their own words, past scholarship applicants describe why they want to experience Camp Zoofari:
“I want to be a veterinarian!”
“I want to learn about the different ways to take care of animals and why they live in the habitats that they live in.”
“I love animals and I love to learn. This camp allows me to be me.”
