Let your children go WILD at Chehaw!

When school is out Chehaw is the place to be. Join us throughout the year for summer, spring, and winter break camps. Chehaw proudly offers, sleepaway, full and half day camps during school breaks for children between the ages of 4-14. Each day of camp includes a trip to the zoo, games, activities, an animal encounter, and a snack! Children have fun while learning through hands-on activities.



Chehaw is a community of animals, staff, and volunteers. Volunteers work all over the Park, Zoo, and beyond. Benefits of being a Chehaw volunteer include free admission for some positions, acquiring new skills, and having fun working with great animals, staff, and other volunteers! Choose a program!
