Send a Kid to Camp

Thank you!

The 2017 Send a Kid to Camp campaign has successfully met our goal of raising enough funds to provide up to 200 scholarship spots for this summer’s Camp Zoofari! Thank you to all of our amazing donors who made this possible.

If you’d like to support the Houston Zoo’s conservation education programs, please consider a gift to the Houston Zoo Fund.

In Their Own Words

Past scholarship applicants describe what Camp Zoofari (and your gift) means to them:

“Camp Zoofari is so much fun! I can make new friends, do fun projects, and best of all visit with the animals.”

“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 want to learn about animals and how they live. I want to meet kids that have the same interests as me and make new friends. I hope someday I can make a difference for endangered animals and want to learn ways that I can save them.”

The Camp Zoofari Experience

Camp Zoofari is packed with fun and engaging camps offering different themes. With “The Zoo Around You,” kids learn about the many animal species that call Texas home. At “Wildlife Arts,” campers express their wild creativity. And at “Keeper Camp,” young learners go behind the scenes to discover what it takes to be a zookeeper!
