Minimum Camp Size
FONZ reserves the right to cancel a program no less than two days before the class begins if registration is under five participants. In this event, you will be notified by phone or e-mail and offered credit for another program, a full refund, or the option to donate your program fee to FONZ.
Drop-off for all camps is in the Visitor Center lobby. After gathering with teachers and classmates, campers will be led to their classroom in the Visitor Center. Campers in After-Camp Care must be picked up in Visitor Center classrooms. You must show photo identification when picking up your camper at dismissal or in After-Camp Care.
All participants must have an online account in the Friends of National Zoo’s registration system. This system enables you to register multiple children at once, view your account online, and make payments. You will need your FONZ member ID, or temporary ID, and the 2016 discount code to receive member rates.
For the safety of your child and the Zoo's animals, there is no contact with live animals or behind-the-scenes access provided in these classes.
