PLUS! Special Christmas Keeper Kids Courses

We have so much to do at the zoo at Christmas that we have created a one day Christmas programme where our Keeper Kids can help us with our job list. Create crackers, wrap presents, fill sacks and make decorations for our younger animal. Don’t forget we need to prepare our reindeer for their busy time ahead. Of course there will be celebrations and surprises for Keeper Kids too!

  • Christmas Course 1 –  16th December 2017
  • Christmas Course 2 –  23rd December 2017

This special festive course is for one day and costs just £55 per child.  

    This includes a Christmas present from Santa, personal access to photos from the day and a beanie hat with the Christmas keeper kid’s logo.   

    Other benefits for parents/guardians include a free car parking pass and a discount card for the shop (10% discount) and café (20% discount).  These will be available to collect from Keeper Kids staff on the morning of the course.
