Make your child’s spring and summer break a wild adventure with our educational programs!
Is your child wild about animals and zoology? These educational programs, organized by EARTH Limited, offer children the perfect opportunity to explore Southwick’s Zoo and learn through hands on activities! Our young adventurers get to experience some of our animals up close and personal, visit our local wetlands to learn about native wildlife, learn through play via games and activities, get creative with crafts and art projects, and more!
2020 Summer Program Update
At this time, Summer Wild Adventure Progams are still scheduled. In the event that a week must be canceled, parents will be given the option of a refund or to reschedule their child to a program for the appropriate grade level later in the summer (if still available).
Our Summer Wild Adventure Program strives to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our students and staff. We will be following federal, state and local guidelines with regard to social distance and cleanliness. We have the advantage in that the vast majority of our time is spent outdoors, and the grounds of Southwick's Zoo offer us the chance to travel together while maintaining social distance. We clean and disinfect camp areas regularly and always require our students to wash their hands with soap and water before meals and frequently throughout the day.
If you have any questions, please contact Bob Clark, Wild Adventure Program Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spring Wild Adventure Programs
We offer single-day sessions during April vacation for children in grades 2-6. This program offers an overview of all of the animals in the zoo, and children learn through hands-on activities such as games and animal encounters!
Summer Wild Adventure Programs
Summer Wild Adventure Programs are available for grades K-10. Our young adventurers will explore the zoo and learn through a variety of interactive activities such as games, crafts, and even meeting some of our animal ambassadors up close and personal. All Summer Wild Adventure students also get to tie-dye their own t-shirt to bring home. Programs range from a 3-day mini program for children entering grades K-2 to a program for older children interested in careers relating to zoology.
