K-12 Day Camps at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay

Zoo School Programs

Open your students' eyes to a world of wildlife!

Zoo School is the ultimate educational experience for students grades K-5.

Explore the wild side of Busch Gardens as you enjoy self-guided tours of animal exhibits, investigate the adaptations of great apes through hands-on activity stations, and experience up-close exclusive animal encounters. Take a break from your adventures to enjoy lunch at one of our restaurants or bring your own lunches from school. From 9:45 a.m. - 1:30 p.m., your students will be engaged in a one-of-a-kind educational experience you can only find at Busch Gardens!


Zoo School connects with the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards, and includes an Activity Guide with grade-based activities and animal information to help you make the most of your day. Due to the educational focus of the program, Busch Gardens' rides, shows, and attractions are not included in Zoo School.
