Camp Chehaw | Experience Sleep Away Camp at a Zoo!

Camp Chehaw is the coolest destination for your adventurous camper.  This is the perfect blend between zoo and traditional overnight camps.  Many friendships and memories will be made as we learn survival skills and explore the outdoors through canoe trips, nature walks, archery, and primitive skills demonstrations.  The fun doesn’t stop there, each day, campers will get the opportunity to explore the animal kingdom through zoo visits and behind the scenes encounters.  Our animal exploration goes beyond the public barriers into our fully AZA accredited Zoo with activities like feeding our camels, lemurs and rhinos.  When the sun goes down the adventures continues, evenings behold night hikes to the bat house, feeding the alligators on exhibit, and the most challenging of scavenger hunts.  Even living quarters provide a unique twist to your traditional camps, children get to sleep in giant teepees.  Our whole week is dedicated to connecting campers with nature; all activities promote conservation and sustainability.  This camp is open to boys and girls ages 8-14 years.  We offer three sessions, June 17- 23, June 24- 30, and July 15-21.  Most campers stay the full week, a fourth day check out option is available.  For more information and registration details check out our website at www.chehaw.org
