Day Camps

Summer Camp is a time to make new friends, try new things, come face-to-face with a giraffe and challenge North America’s tallest freestanding drop tower. Only at Busch Gardens® Tampa Bay! For more than 25 years we've provided children with inspiring, exciting, and educational camp experiences and we look forward to having your child join us this year.
