"Put Me in the Zoo too" - spring break and summer camps at the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo

Have you ever walked into your kid's room and asked them if they were raised in a zoo? The Fort Wayne Children's Zoo is offering kids of all ages a chance to experience the zoo up close by attending spring break or summer camps.

The camps range from programs for 18 - 36 month old children (adult companion required) to animal training and junior zoo keeper programs for 11 - 12 year olds. The junior zoo keepers even get to sleep in the zoo one night. Before and after camp care is available for the summer program.

At this point, most camps still have vacancies available, but they will fill up as summer approaches.

The Fort Wayne Children's Zoo also has a volunteer program for teens and an internship program for high school seniors and college students. The deadline for applying for the teen program is March 2nd! See this article for information.

There are a limited number of Campership scholarships available to cover the costs. Contact the Zoo Education Department at for an application.

If you are interested in offering a Campership to an underpriviledged child, please contact the Zoo Education Department at

More information on summer camps and programs will be published in future articles.
