Summer Opportunities at the Toledo Zoo

May 8, 2019

TOLEDO, Ohio — Let the whole family experience the Toledo Zoo in wild ways, with these unique summer offerings:

Summer vacation means Toledo Zoo Summer Safari Camps sponsored by Toby & Sue Cardone. These affordably priced week-long day camps are designed for campers ages four to 15 and run June 3 through August 9. This year’s camp topics range from exploring animals of the past to becoming an animal hero or fishing in local ponds! Older kids (ages 11-15) can spend time working as Junior Zookeepers or even venture out with Zoo biologists for a hands-on project in Conservation Explorers. Most camps run 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Children may be signed up for one or more camps. Zoo member discounts apply. Learn more and sign up at

Zoo Snoozes invite the entire family to camp overnight at the Zoo with children ages six and older. This nocturnal experience includes animal interaction, keeper talks, exclusive tours, delicious meals and more. Sleeping accommodations vary by date; locations include the Forest Room of the award-winning Nature’s Neighborhood, the Aquarium and the Hippoquarium®. Learn more at

There is no better way to get a unique look at Your Zoo than to experience it from the keeper’s perspective during a Behind-the-Scenes Tour. Learn about our excellent animal care and conservation programs, hear first-hand stories from Zoo staff and be up close to some amazing animals. A Behind-the-Scenes Tour makes any Zoo visit special.
