Riverbanks Zoo

Uptown Day Camp is taking their final field trip of the summer and going to Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, South Carolina.  This is an all-day field trip, from 8am - 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 14, 2019.


On the day of the trip, all campers will need to arrive at Irwin Academic Center at 8:00 a.m. for breakfast.  We will then board the buses and head to the zoo.  Once we arrive at the zoo, we will have lunch in the picnic area, break into small groups, and enjoy the exhibits and all the great animals.  Campers are required to provide their own sack lunch in a labeled brown lunch bag.

The cost of this field trip is $13.50.  In order for us to plan accordingly we need parents/guardians to do the following:

  • Use the RSVP form to confirm that your child will be at UDC that week AND will attend the Riverbanks Zoo field trip.  In order to attend the field trip, your child must attend camp for the entirety of that week.  RSVP forms must be completed no later than Tuesday, August 6, 2019.

  • Ensure that all UDC fees for the summer are paid. 

  • Send the payment for the field trip, $13.50 in a Ziploc bag labeled with your child's first name, last name, and grade to UDC no later than Wednesday, August 7, 2019.  Late payments and RSVP are not able to be accommodated.

Unfortunately, due to the magnitude of this field trip, no extensions can be provided for missed deadlines.  If you plan for your child to attend Riversidebanks Zoo, please complete this RSVP form HERE
