Registration Instructions / Rates / Online Registration / Flier (PDF)
The Long Island Game Farm is inviting children from all over Long Island to Camp Zoo in Manorville, New York. Camp Zoo is a weeklong summer day camp where children learn about animals, zoology and environmental conservation from an experienced teacher and animal lover.
Camp Zoo is back for its ninth year as Long Island’s most interactive animal-themed children’s camp! Camp Zoo is a weeklong summer day camp where children can learn about animals, zoology and environmental conservation through a variety of activities and guidance from a knowledgeable teacher.
Throughout their weeklong adventure, children will embark on nature hikes, explore the wildlife park on zoo tours, take part in scavenger hunts and learn about zoology through talks with the park’s experienced zoo keepers. Campers will also experience up-close animal encounters that can’t be found anywhere else on Long Island.
