Summer Camp

Summer camps at Tanganyika will provide your child with the most wildly different experience imaginable!

What to Expect

With each week having its own theme, your camper will never get bored hanging out with us all summer! Your Jr. Zookeeper will spend each day learning and having fun through age-appropriate learning pods while playing, building, creating, experimenting, and interacting with Tanganyika’s unique animals!

Environmental Education Tip:

Did you know that one week of camp helps cover the cost of caring for our Indian Rhino, Stacks, for FOUR days!

Not only can campers connect with our animals, but campers make a difference in helping us care for our animals and our overall mission! Tanganyika strives to protect the natural world with over 40 different conservation programs at our park!

You and your camper are directly helping our mission to positively impact our planet by keeping endangered species alive!
