Spring Wild Adventure Programs – Grades 2-6


We offer three single-day programs, each covering a different topic, during April vacation for children in grades 2-6. Children learn through hands-on activities such as games and animal encounters!

Summer Wild Adventure Programs – Grades k-10


Summer Wild Adventure Programs are available for grades K-10. 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.
