Bramble Park Zoo’s summer camps are entertaining, educational, and unforgettable! Participants enjoy engaging activities and learning about the diversity of life in specific theme-based camps. Campers will have the opportunity to view live animals up close, explore the Zoo, and everyone will have a “wild” time! ZooCamp 1: “Summer Science” will focus on exploring the animal kingdom and letting your inner scientist shine, while ZooCamp 2: “Most Extrememe Animals” will highlight memes and unique animals, what could be more fun?! Please pack a healthy non-perishable snack each day. You can sign-up for 1 session in each theme!

Due to COVID-19, many rules and offerings have changed!

Following CDC Guidelines, class sizes will be limited to 10 participants (all must be registered on the class roster, no tag-along siblings will be allowed this year). Parent/trusted adult of younger kids (5 and under) during Toddler Time, Preschool Zoo and grandparents during A Grand Class are required (at no charge) to help with social distancing and hand washing. Times were also changed to allow for more cleaning and disinfecting between groups. We will spend as much time outside as possible so please dress accordingly. Classes may be cancelled or shortened due to new developments.

Classes at Bramble Park Zoo immerse kids in wildlife, the environment, and the need to protect and care for both, all in a unique setting: the Zoo!

  • Online pre-registration is required. https://secure.rec1.com/SD/watertown-sd
