Overnight Camps at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay

Summer Resident Camps

All-inclusive, one-of-a-kind experience

Whether looking for a career in the zoological field or a chance to push adventure to the limit, Busch Gardens Summer Resident Camp is a home-away-from-home where you live what you love!

For two decades, Busch Gardens Summer Resident Camps have combined nature and thrills to create a unique one-of-a-kind experience. Based out of our secure onsite dormitory, Mzinga Lodge, we provide campers grades 5 through college an all-inclusive camp experience from start to finish.

Home to more than 12,000 animals and world class coasters, Busch Gardens has camps for both animal lovers and thrill seekers alike.
