There's a Safari right in your backyard—and this spring and summer, your kids can explore it!

Registration is now open for Spring and Summer Safari Day Camps at the Smithsonian's National Zoo. Animal lovers in grades K-5 will delight in a week-long Zoo experience as they visit animals, take part in hands-on experiments, create craft projects and more!

Friends of the National Zoo members can register for these fast-selling classes before the general public. Priority registration is based on your member level, and the schedule is:

  • Premier Plus-level members and above: 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 30
  • All members: 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 6
  • General public: 10 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 13

The Spring Safari Day Camp offers four different camps for the week of March 26. Summer Safari Day Camps run from June to August, so there are plenty of opportunities to learn and explore.
