BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — Learning is WILDLY fun at Binder Park Zoo! The zoo has announced the 2020 Summer Day Camp and Zoo Overnight schedules and registration is now open at []. Register early for the dates and programs you want and take advantage of up to three available discounts.

This exciting alternative to daycare, Summer Day Camp is nine weeks; June 15th through August 14th and features fun themes like Conservation Kids, Jr. Zoo Keepers, Mystery Week, Passport to Nature, and Wildlife Warriors that take a fun and fascinating dive into zoo wildlife and conservation. Choose from one week or the full nine weeks of fun designed to get your 1st through 7th graders out in nature to see live animals up close, learn from the zookeepers and make animal enrichment like toys and food puzzles, because animals like to play too! Hurry to register online before April 30 using the coupon code CHIRP-CHIRP to receive an early bird discount of 10%. Additional savings apply to zoo members and those who register for multiple weeks.

Find out what happens at the zoo at night at a Zoo Overnight! A sleepover at the zoo is a rare opportunity for guests ages 6 and up to experience sleeping under the stars near the snow leopard exhibit, or spending the night savanna-side in your own tented camp. In both settings you’ll meet live animals, hike the zoo and share other exciting nighttime adventures. A zoo visit is never the same experience twice, and an overnight at the zoo brings it to a whole new level of fun for families, scouts, clubs and other groups. Space is limited, so reserve your spot now!
