Spring Wild Adventure Programs – Grades 1-6


We offer single-day sessions during April vacation for the following grade level groups: 1-3, 2-4, and 4-6. This program offers an overview of all of the animals in the zoo, and children learn through hands-on activities such as games and animal encounters!

Summer Wild Adventure Programs – Grades k-9


Summer Wild Adventure Programs are available for grades K-9. Our young adventurers will explore the zoo and learn through a variety of interactive activities such as games, crafts, and even meeting some of our animal ambassadors up close and personal. All Summer Wild Adventure students also get to tie-dye their own t-shirt to bring home. Programs range from a 3-day mini program for children entering grades K-2 to a program for older children interested in careers relating to zoology.
