Zoo Classes

Please Note:  Due to COVID-19, all classes in the month of May will be done virtually via ZOOM. We will provide materials for crafts and activities that can be picked-up at the Zoo ahead of class times. The safety of our guests, staff, and animals is our highest priority. 

Zoo Camps
Zoo Camp Notice: Safety during the COVID-19 pandemic is a high priority for Potawatomi Zoo. We have made the difficult decision to offer a limited number of Zoo Camps at a lower maximum capacity and with increased safety precautions (see more in our Camp Safety Guidelines). If you registered for a camp that has been cancelled, you have been contacted via e-mail. We are offering to transfer registration to the available dates or process full refunds. If you registered for a camp and would like to cancel or transfer your registration, please call the Education Department at (574) 235-7621.
