Wild Adventure Programs

2021 Wild Adventure Programs

Our Wild Adventure Program strives to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our students and staff, and we will be following federal, state, and local guidelines regarding social distancing and cleanliness.  We have the advantage in that the vast majority of our time is spent outdoors, and the grounds of Southwick's Zoo offer us the chance to travel together while maintaining social distance.  Camp areas are cleaned and disinfected regularly, and we always require our students to wash their hands with soap and water frequently throughout the day including before meals.

Please note that all children will be required to wear a mask when indoors or in an area where they cannot socially distance during Summer Wild Adventure Programs.

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.
