At Lincoln Park Zoo camps, kids in grades preK–8 go wild for nature. Through hands-on activities and visiting the animals, campers uncover all the ways the zoo—and the Earth!—is an amazing place.
As part of our commitment to serving all who want to participate in our programs, scholarships are available for most of our programs.
