Spring Wild Adventure Programs – Grades 1-6


We offer single-day sessions for our Adventure with Animals program for the following grade level groups: 1-3, 2-4, and 4-6 during Spring Break. 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


We offer program sessions for the following grade levels: K & 1, 2 & 3, 4-6, and 7-9. Our young adventurers will explore the zoo and learn through a variety of hands on activities such as games, crafts, and even meeting some of our animals up close and personal. All Wild Adventure students also get to tie-dye their own t-shirt. Programs range from a 2-day mini program for children entering grades K & 1 to a program for older children interested in careers relating to zoology.
