Summer Camps at the JMZ


The Junior Museum & Zoo is offering three in-person camps, and one virtual camp for summer 2020.


Because of restrictions due to COVID-19, we are offering our in-person camps as two, and three week sessions options. Zoo camp will not be offered in-person in 2020, but we do have a virtual Zoo Camp option.


Find out more on our Summer Camps page.

The Junior Museum has moved!

Find us at Cubberley Community Center during construction of our new facility. Due to the effects of Covid-19, the re-opening of the Junior Museum & Zoo is planned for Spring 2020.
