Summer Safari

Each summer kids in kindergarten through the 8th grade can spend a whole week learning about the zoo and its unique residents during Summer Safari. Each class is geared to a specific age group and sessions include activities, crafts, behind-the-scenes tours, snacks, train rides, animal encounters, visits with zookeepers, and a t-shirt. Summer Safari classes enable your child to experience the Zoo and its animals under the guidance of educators, trained volunteers and Zoo staff.
