Discover the amazing animals, habitats and the remarkable conservation work taking place all around the world. All of this learning happens through a range of fun activities both in and out of our learning centre.
It includes playful zoo trails, inspiring conservation action, practical skills, exciting games, arts and crafts, and much, much more!
We work hard to ensure that children have opportunity to rest and play in-between exploring the zoo. Our learning centre is our base for the three days and will be set up to provide free access to games, creative activities and quiet spaces to rest when needed.
A typical holiday club may look like this:
8.45am – Drop off at the main entrance.
9am-11am – A visit to an area of the zoo whilst it is shut such as the Black Rhinos to observe and see the animals and looking at Africa and the species within it.
11am-12pm – Activities and team building games either outside in the zoo or in the Learning Centre.
12pm-1pm – Lunch and time for free play.
1pm-3pm – A craft activity relating to the topic.
3pm – Summary activity for the day.
4pm – Pick up.
The timetables and activities will be flexible according to the group’s needs.
Who is it for? Mini Ranger Holiday Clubs are for children who are in primary school years 1-3. Children should be booked into the school year group they are currently in. The school year runs 1 September – 31 August.
What’s included? 3 days of activities. Lunch is not included.
Our holiday clubs do not include any hands-on contact with any of the animals in the zoo, or behind-the-scenes access to any keeper areas.
We’ve got lots of events on offer which are suitable for a variety of ages. Keep an eye on our events page to discover more.
Please note: If you cannot make our first Mini Ranger Holiday Club in July 2022, the content for this holiday club will be repeated in August to give you another chance to join us for a spectacular and exciting event!
