Racine Zoo Campership Fund

Help a child attend Summer Camp at Racine Zoo! Don't have kids, but want to support other children? Or maybe you have children, but you want to help other kids get the same fun opportunity as yours? Consider contributing to our Campership Fund. This is a scholarship fund designed to help children in need, such as foster children and those that come from low-income families. Your donation can help send a child to camp free of charge or help defray the cost. Our camps provide children with the opportunity to engage with nature and build environmental stewardship skills, as they grow into future conservation leaders in their communities. We want to expand that opportunity and create an even bigger impact. Whether it's $20 or $100, a gift of any size truly makes a difference.

Donate now on our Donations Page. Select "Campership Fund" on the dropdown menu.
