Zoo Classes and Camps

Sunset Zoo will begin phasing in, in-person programming starting June 1.


Nature-Based Learning


Sunset Zoo is your year-round destination for nature-based learning adventures. Our classes and camps provide attendees an up-close exploration of the natural world, featuring live animal encounters and guided Zoo tours. Trained staff bring to life a variety of educational topics from animal adaptations to wildlife conservation. 

Early Childhood Programs


Sunset Zoo is currently offering Online Zoofari Tails through the Manhattan Public Library.

School Age Youth


Sunset Zoo will be offering summer camps for children having completed Kindergarten through children completing 4th grade during the summer of 2021.  Due to COVID-19, space in our summer camps will be reduced to maintain maximum social distancing while in our classroom spaces.  With the reduced capacity, we will not be offering a half-day option in 2021.  For more information on summer camps, click here.

Pre-Teen & Teen Opportunities


Pre-teens and teens ages 10 through 17 can participate in Sunset Zoo's Junior Conservation Crew, Junior Zookeeper, Z.O.O. Crew After School Program, and Zoo Teen program.  For more information, click here.
