Summer Wild Adventure Program FAQs

Where and when do I drop my child off?

On the first day of the program, please arrive by 8:45am. The drop off area is located at the top of the zoo's smaller parking lot (across the street from the larger field parking lot). There will be a picnic table.

Where do I pick up my child?

Children will be picked up at 4:00pm at the top of the zoo's smaller parking lot (across the street from the larger field parking lot). There will be a picnic table and sign.

What should my child wear?

Make sure your child is dressed for the weather. We spend most of the day outdoors and do a large amount of walking, so we recommend that children wear comfortable shoes and do not wear sandals or open toed shoes. Following state guidelines, children will be required to wear a face mask throughout the day, excluding during meal times. We strongly recommend packing an extra mask in case one gets dirty or is unusable.

What should my child bring?

  • A mask or other fabric face covering such as a bandana. Following state guidelines, children will be required to wear a face mask throughout the day, excluding during meal times. We strongly recommend packing an extra mask in case one gets dirty or is unusable.
  • Sneakers or boots only (no sandals, flip flops, or open-toed shoes). Shoes must be comfortable enough for children to walk all over the zoo.
  • Backpack
  • A pencil bag with colored pencils, markers, crayons, small paint brush and regular pencils.
  • Additional clothing depending on the day’s weather forecast (i.e. extra socks, raincoat, sweatshirt, hat, etc.)
  • Water bottle - We have water available to refill bottles, but, to minimize contact, we recommend packing two water bottles each day.
  • Sunscreen
  • Insect repellent
  • Lunch & snacks - We provide snacks and water during morning and afternoon snack time. Snacks will be individually packaged, single serve snacks. Since kids are active all day, they tend to get hungry, so you may wish to send more than you typically would for school lunch.
  • Hand sanitizer - We have installed a hand washing station, staff will have hand sanitizer, and hand sanitizer is available in various locations in the zoo, but we recommend that children bring their own to help minimize contact.
