Hi community - we are looking for recommendations for summer camps with animals for a rising first graders. We know about the Oakland Zoo camps, but that’s about it. Thanks!

If you're willing to go through the tunnel (and can do a pricier camp), Sienna Ranch runs farm camps that are supposed to be great. Fairyland's camps have a little animal interaction (but it's not a focus). The Oakland SPCA also runs a camp focused more on pets and pet care.
Doodleton Ranch in Clayton offers summer camps with lots of animals and outside time! Highly recommended. Also, a fantastic setting for kids birthday parties!
My kids have done Sienna Ranch camps and I highly recommend them. The staff are wonderful and they get a lot of hands time working with the farm animals and in the garden. They also have a horse focused camp among many other specialty camps.
