Zoo Club is an after-school club for all young animal enthusiasts. Have you a child who is a budding zookeeper? This five-week programme – now overseen by our new education officer – will involve all aspects of life as a keeper. This will include topics such as how we feed our animals, how we keep them healthy, how we prepare and maintain their homes, how we work with our animals and also how we enrich their lives. There will be the chance to get up close with a range of zoo and farmyard animals.
Each session will be age appropriate, and as the age range progresses, the complexity of the animals the children work with increases. Former Zoo Club members are welcome back – the course content will be different to previous sessions.
You can book for either Minis (5-7 year olds, Mondays), Juniors (8-10 year olds, Tuesdays) or Seniors (11-14 year olds, Thursdays). All sessions are 4-5pm. We also offer a bespoke course for home educating families on Wednesdays from 1.45-2.45pm. The next courses start w/c 12th September – w/c 10th October 2022 inclusive. There will be small groups of up to ten children of a similar age. The total cost is £90, which includes all sessions, a Zoo Club t-shirt, certificate and a group photo (by email). Please note that snacks will not be provided and children are asked to bring a water bottle and their wellies. Parents and siblings of Zoo Club children may come onto site to wait free of charge.
I like it that there is different animals to learn about each week. Dougie and Paul are really enthusiastic when they talked about the animals and I like listening to them. My favourite things at zoo club have been touching the animals especially the snake and making things for them. I like it that we can stay and play at Beale Park after zoo club.
Both my grandsons are thoroughly enjoying it. M had his dream come true yesterday by holding a snake. It’s a fantastic opportunity for them.
