“The zoo education classes are WONDERFUL! My son, who has been in these classes since he was 3 years old, absolutely enjoys them. He learns so much about the animals, which helps him to appreciate each one even more. The children are so involved in many different hands on activities. That makes it exciting and intriguing for the children as they learn. The teachers are amazing, you can tell they are prepared and love what they do! My son asks when the next zoo class will be right after one has just finished! As we drive past the zoo almost every day he says "Hi zoo and Hi zoo class!" This is because of the great experience he has at each education class! I recommend the zoo education and summer camps to everyone.”
Tracy G., Milwaukee

Summer camps are fun-filled, educational programs for children ages 2-14 featuring some of the most amazing creatures.
