Campers will meet at a home base location where parents will drop off/ pick up and will also serve as classroom time. From there, the El Paso Zoo Society will provide transportation field trip locations throughout the city that include trips to the Licon Dairy to learn about animals and enjoy the petting zoo.


As well as a trip to the Bodega Loya Farm where campers will learn about planting and growing food here in the desert.

Camp starts at $199; you can choose to go all nine weeks or you can choose just one week to join in on the fun. You can find out more information- as well as how to sign your camper up- here.

As summer vacation starts, I know how hard it can be for parents to figure out how to stimulate their student's minds when they're not in school; make this summer wildly different and let your child's inner explorer embark on a new adventure!
