Our Zoo Camps are NOT a safe environment for children with severe contact allergies to nuts or other food types, or animals and/or their bedding material.  This affects all of our camps as we go behind the scenes to various zoo keeper only locations. Please inform the Saskatoon Zoo Society of any allergies your child may have.
