ROYAL OAK, Mich., May 25, 2012 – The Detroit Zoo is offering a lineup of new and past-favorite Summer Safari camps to keep kids occupied all summer long.  From June 25 through Aug. 17, 2012, children ages 4 to 15 can explore the wonders of nature and wildlife with tours of the Zoo, hands-on activities, games and crafts.

Parents can choose from a variety of half-day, single-day, weeklong and overnight sessions geared toward specific age groups.  A combination of programs can be paired for a week's worth of camps.

Prices for the Summer Safari camp sessions range from $28 to $240 for Detroit Zoological Society members and $33 to $250 for non-members.

Busy parents can drop daytime campers off early or pick them up late to enjoy before- and after-camp activities.  Early Bird drop-off starts at 7:30 a.m. and Late Owl pick-up runs until 5:30 p.m.  Costs range from $5 for a single session to $50 for Monday through Friday mornings and afternoons.
