When school’s out, Zoo Camp is IN! Nowhere else on the First Coast can your child spend all week nose-to-nose with an elephant, toe-to-toe with a flamingo, neck-to-neck with a giraffe, eye-to-eye with an anaconda or shoulder-to-shoulder with a gorilla! All of our programs include Zoo tours, activities & games, crafts and hands-on encounters with animals everyday. Members of the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens receive discounts on Education Programs and FREE admission every time they visit. Become a Member today and take advantage of the discount right away!
