Spend some time Monkeying Around with your primate pals; go for the gold in Animal Olympics; take an African Adventure right at Como; or try on the hat of a zookeeper or gardener in Behind-the-Scenes!
Como’s camps focus on expanding each child’s appreciation for the natural world while meeting zookeepers and gardeners, having “behind-the-scenes” experiences and meeting Como’s plant and animal ambassadors up-close!
Qualified and enthusiastic instructors teach camps for children in preschool through seventh grade. Children are accepted into age-appropriate camps based on the grade they will be entering for the 2016-2017 school year.
Camps are half-day sessions, Monday through Friday. All-day adventures are available by taking a morning and an afternoon camp in the same week, within the same age group. A supervised lunch period is included for full day campers. Children bring their own lunch or a box lunch can be purchased in advance. Extended Care is also available for a fee.
Registration Deadlines and Cancellations
Registrations are taken up to 48 hours prior to the start of the camp or until it is full. If a camp has not met the participant minimum one week before it is scheduled to start, it will be cancelled.
