The Louisville Zoo announced today that it will be canceling all 2020 May and June summer camps to help prevent the spread COVID-19.
Registrants for the canceled summer camps will receive an email from the Zoo about refunds and additional options. Participants may also convert their camp registration into a donation to the Zoo or defer it for 2021 camp programs.
The various camp sessions for children pre-kindergarten through grade 6 were originally scheduled for May through August. For those who have registered for camps July or later, the Zoo will reach out to provide a status update by May 15.
