Seneca Park Zoo
Seneca Park Zoo offers a special needs camp for children ages 5 and 6 the week of July 20 and for ages 7 to 9 the week of August 17. Three counselors support a maximum of 15 children. This camp is tailored specifically for children with special needs who would benefit from additional support. If your child can participate in camp but requires individual assistance with communication, behavior support, or ADLs, contact the Zoo about arranging to have your own aide attend with your child, so they may have the most inclusive experience possible.
