Camp Cowabunga, the first major exhibit of the zoos master plan is opening August 31st.

Topeka Zoo makes several announcements, including that Camp Cowabunga will open August 31
Do people still say "cowabunga" in America? It seems like a really weird name for a zoo exhibit. I actually googled it to see if it was in reference to something, and found a kid's tv show from the 80s called Camp Cowabunga, and also an actual Camp Cowabunga in El Segundo.
What does it have to do with Africa though?
Gary K. Clarke was Director of Topeka Zoo for many years and he ended up going on something crazy like 150 African safaris and the name Camp Cowabunga comes from him. Clarke actually worked as a consultant of sorts on the new exhibit complex and so in a way Topeka Zoo is honoring his legacy as Director Emeritus.
