Summer Camp Adventures – Summer Camp Program Guide

Summer Camps sponsored by A. Duda & Sons



We want every camper’s experience at camp to be positive and memorable. To provide that experience, campers should be able to:

  • Move independently from place to place; ability to stay with the group at all times.
  • Take care of their own personal needs.
  • Have effective interactions in our group-based environment (ex. buddy systems, group projects, etc.)
  • Abide by the Camp Manners Agreement

Mask Policy – All participants are required to bring a face mask for any behind-the-scenes animal encounters; no exceptions.

If you have any questions about the essential functions listed above, please contact us at 407.323.4450 ext. 123. We would be happy to talk to you about your camper’s specific needs.

The Zoo’s summer camps have been designed to provide our campers with a fun, safe, and developmentally appropriate program. To promote teamwork and provide the best experience for all campers, please register children according to the age they will be while participating in summer camp. The Zoo reserves the right to move campers into camps appropriate for their age level. We encourage campers to experience a variety of camps. Repeating camps are the same.


Each camper must bring their own lunch. Lunches brought from home do not have to be disposable. We will have snack time in the morning and afternoon, so please send two snacks with your child. We suggest you label all lunch/snack items and water bottles so they can be returned quickly if misplaced. Each camper must bring a water bottle with their name on it.


  • Parents, guardians, and other non-essential visitors will not be permitted into designated camp classrooms.
  • Parents/guardians are encouraged to designate one person to drop off campers every day.


  • Parents/guardians are required to provide a valid driver’s license each day for pick-up.
  • Parents, guardians, and other non-essential visitors will not be permitted into designated camp classrooms.
  • Parents/guardians are encouraged to designate one person to pick up campers every day.


Camps should be selected by the age your child will be at the time they participate in summer camp. Confirmation materials will be provided after completing registration.
