It takes way more than a shovel and some food to take care of zoo animals. Sometimes it’s sweet, sometimes it’s cute, sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it’s wacky, sometimes it’s frustrating, and sometimes it’s just plain ICKY! Spend a day or the whole week investigating what it takes to be a member of an animal care team, and keeping a zoo running from sun up to sun down all year long.

Jackson Zoo Camps are all about animals, the environment, personal growth, team work, and FUN. Plus, all lesson plans follow the Mississippi state mandated education guidelines, and the daily activities include:

Monday – Friday for Jackson Zoo Members: $130
Monday – Friday for Non-members : $145

Early care 8 to 9 a.m. $30 for the week
Late pick ups 3:45 to 4:30 p.m. $45 for the week

*Please pack a daily lunch for your child, as we do not have daily access to cafe services.


FULL CAMP PACKAGE for Zoo Members: only $255

FULL CAMP PACKAGE for Non Members: $270
