Junior Zoo Academy is a unique course aimed at children aged 8-10, who love animals and want to learn more about working in the Zoo.
This two-day course includes games, challenges, trails and zookeeper activities. Supported by education staff, students will have the chance to learn about the animals they see and well as make new friends with other like-minded children.
The course includes
Two days at ZSL London or ZSL Whipsnade Zoo
A Junior Zoo Academy scrapbook to record their experiences
A Junior Zoo Academy certificate of attendance
A unique Junior Zoo Academy t-shirt
A copy of all the photos taken on the course
Free car park pass
The content of the course at both ZSL London and ZSL Whipsnade Zoo will be a mixture of animal challenges, games, talks and some zookeeper tasks. A sample outline of the course is below, but please be aware that timings and activities are all subject to change.
To record their time at the zoo, children will also create a Zoo Scrapbook to take home. They’ll be able to log all the fun and exciting experiences they have with photos and drawings as well as remind themselves of any new facts they have learnt along the way! Children will also gain a certificate at the end of the course to celebrate their attendance on the course.
