Camp Zoofari

Dr. Zoo-Little

December 26-28

For the first time since 2007, the Houston Zoo is offering a veterinarian-themed camp!  Campers will discover the work that goes into caring for the animals of the Houston Zoo.  Each day, campers will meet a member of our veterinarian team and hear about how their work is saving animals inside the Zoo, in Texas and around the world.  Please note: This experience is front-of-scenes.  Campers will not assist with veterinary care.

Each camp will be an individual, single-day experience with different opportunities.  You can send a camper for just one day or the entire week!
