The NC Zoo is proud to launch Camp KidZu! These day camps are specially designed for children with high functioning Autism or Asperger's Syndrome who do not require significant behavioral support, have verbal abilities and would do well in a day camp setting. They are a great way for your child to experience the beauty and adventure that can only be found at the NC Zoo. Each day camp has a different theme and many offer such things as zoo keeper talks, visiting animal exhibits, a take home craft, and a great deal of hands-on fun. Camp KidZu is funded thanks to the generous support of Autism Speaks and the Weaver Foundation.
