Let’s talk about food!
Everyone is welcomed to bring their own food, snacks, and drinks. Or ask us about catering options: there are local restaurants who are happy to deliver.
Visit the Zoo

The zoo also has a wonderful education department that would be thrilled to discuss educational programming that they offer, including zookeeper talks and private tours. For more information about educational programming please contact the Education Department at 609-465-6832 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are unlimited ways you can build a trip to the adventure park into your lesson plan!
Here are some ways you can get creative with this field trip:
It’s easy to spark their interest in subjects like fitness, health, physiology, and what the human body is capable of when you can get them moving. Explore every-thing from strength, stamina, heart rates, and more.
Miss Frizzle and the Magic School Bus doesn’t have anything on you; teach them about geology, physics, biology, anatomy, botany, bio-mechanics…and they enjoy this hands-on and “in the field” approach.
Outdoor Recreational Interests
From an introduction to outdoor program planning, to thinking about the role of sports and leisure activities in society these days.
Lead a program that will inspire your class to take action for the things they are about. Discuss how to leave no trace, the role between conservation and tourism-based activities, how to develop a conservation program proposal…that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
How does the zoo add to our opportunity:
English, Math, History…there are so many ways you can turn this valuable field trip into a valuable lesson while having fun!
