NEW for 2017! Family and Youth Programs

Columbian Park Zoo is excited to announce a brand new line-up of Family and Youth Programs beginning January 2017! 

Our long-running Bedtime Zoo Stories, Little Cub Club, and Young EDventurers programs are retiring, but don't worry - we've taken all the best loved parts and used them as the foundation for a new generation of education programs!   
  • If you enjoyed Bedtime Zoo Stories - check out Zoo Pajama Party in our Family Fun Series.
  • If you loved Little Cub Club - take a look at Zoo Sprouts (ages 3-4) in our Wild Beginnings Series.
  • If your child looked forward to Young EDventurers - they'll be really excited for our new Critter Classes (ages 5-7), Wildlife Workshops (ages 8-11), and Discovery Workshops (ages 12-14) - all part of our new Learning Adventures Series.
Plus, we have new program offerings for toddlers with Two @ the Zoo (age 2 with adult caregiver) and a variety of exciting new Family Fun Days - including the return of the family Zoo Snooze overnight in September! 

Registration for these new programs is now open!  Registration packets are available at the links below.
