Camp Registration Policies
Campers must be registered for the rising grade in the fall 2019 and by a legal guardian only.  Please be prepared to provide emergency contact information, camper health information, list of adults approved to pick up camper, and current member ID if you are a zoo member holding an Individual level membership or above.

In the event a camp week(s) sells out, join the waitlist at no cost by continuing with registration. You will be contacted if an opening occurs; payment will be due upon acceptance. Spaces are released in the order families appear on the waitlist for a given week/grade group.

Please review your purchase carefully before finalizing payment. Lincoln Park Zoo is not responsible for registration errors. If Lincoln Park Zoo must remove a camp registrant from the roster because of ineligibility to register due to falsifying age, grade, donor/member status or were registered by someone other than a legal guardian, a refund will be given less a 12.5% processing fee.

For campers with rising grades of 1-8 in fall 2019, programs are full-day from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Friday. 

For campers 4 years old and heading into PreK-K in the fall 2019, programs are half-day from 9-11:30 a.m. OR 12:30-3 p.m. Campers may not be registered for both the morning and the afternoon sessions during the same week and must be 4 years old by camp week start date. 

After Care from 3-5 p.m. is an option for campers in rising grades 1-8 and PreK-K campers registered for afternoon sessions.

Campers are grouped by grade group, not age (i.e. grades preK-K, grades 1-2, grades 3-4, grades 5-6, grades 7-8).
