Winter Camp

Join us for six days of “wild” fun with our special animal-themed camps! As an added treat, each day campers will visit Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium. Families can register children in K-6th grade for individual days or a 3-day “week.” Camps are scheduled from 9AM-4PM. Our Beyond the Camp experience begins at 7:30AM and ends at 5:30PM and is tailor-made for working parents. All camps are taught by certified teachers. A supervised lunch hour is provided for all campers, and lunches can be brought from home or ordered from the museum soda fountain before camp begins for $5 per camper.
