Join our Zoo Rangers for our three-day holiday activity club, perfect for young animal lover and conservationists of the future.

Discover the amazing animals, habitats and the remarkable conservation work taking place all around the world. All this learning happens through a range of fun activities both in and out of our learning centre.

Over this three day club we’ll be exploring the zoo; discovering and learning about different animals, both big and small. We’ll play games, hear stories, visit animals in the zoo, make crafts and much more!

We have four dates to choose from, please note that our content will repeat at each of the clubs so we recommend only booking one:
