Family & Kids Programs at The Living Desert
Get Ready for Up to 8 Weeks of Wild Fun!
Summer ZooCamp weekly sessions are offered for ages 4 though 12. These sessions run Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 12:00 noon. Summer ZooCampers need to come equipped for outdoor activity with a snack, lunch and water bottle each day.
We'll also be offering special 2-day sessions with our very popular Jr. Ranger Program for campers ages 6-14 at the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and NEW programming for ZooCampers ages 10-14, where our older ZooCampers engage in stimulating observations and experiments to better understand the desert around them!
