How does registration work?

Zoo Camp kids enjoy a demonstration

We’ve worked hard to add more available spaces each summer, but we also know more people will want to join Zoo Camp than we can accommodate. To make the sign up process as equitable and easy as possible, we have implemented a “Virtual Queue” on the first day of our summer registration. Here’s how it works:

Registration is online only. On the day of registration, you can enter the online “waiting room” starting at 9 a.m. When registration officially begins at 10 a.m., everyone in the waiting room will be placed into the Virtual Queue in a random order to begin purchasing spots for Zoo Camp. A limited number of people will be allowed to purchase tickets at one time in order to keep the ticketing system working smoothly, and more people will be let in from the queue every few minutes. The Virtual Queue will keep you up to date on your place in line.

Anyone logging on after registration begins at 10 am will be placed in the back of the Virtual Queue.

Everyone who enters the waiting room between 9 am and 10 am will have an equal chance of being placed early in the queue, so you won’t need to worry about being the first person to load our website that morning.

Zoo Camp Scholarship

2024 Zoo Camp Application Process Is Now Closed.

As a part of the Los Angeles Zoo’s long-standing mission to make nature and animals accessible to the children of Los Angeles, we are proud to offer Summer Zoo Camp Scholarships for families with financial need. Zoo Camp is a week-long day camp offered for 8 weeks during the summer. Zoo Camp is for children independent of their parents and provides a safe, fun, and nurturing setting where they can focus on making friends with both campers and animals. We will hold a lottery if the number of applications received exceeds the awards available.
