Special Needs: We strive for a safe, fun environment for all our participants; however, our staff is not trained to accommodate every special need. To ensure our camps remain inclusive and safe for everyone, please contact the Saskatoon Zoo Society directly to discuss ANY special needs your child may have BEFORE you register, so our program staff can determine what and if accommodations can be made to ensure a great camp experience for all.
