Adventure Cubs

Join us for a new twist on an old favorite!

Calling all Adventure Cubs, ages 0-5, and their favorite grownups for a morning of exploration, learning and fun! Embark on a new journey each month with a Zoo Educator as families get to learn and play together. Spend time in the Zoo observing animals and taking part in engaging activities. This is a great opportunity to make friends, connect to wildlife, and spend time with your little explorers outside. All topics and activities are designed for ages 2-5, with opportunities for exploration for ages 0-2.

Every month, the Adventure Cubs will travel to a new region of the world to explore the animals and environments there! The purpose of each program is to expose young children to a new type of environment, and start drawing connections between different habitats and the animals that live there. For each adventure they go on, Adventure Cubs will engage in an activity, read a story, and create an entry in an Adventure Cubs Memory Book.
