What is your child doing this summer? Why not spend the summer learning at the Gladys Porter Zoo? For the first time, Summer Safari camps and classes will take place in the new South Texas Discovery Education Center. Summer Safari is the perfect place for your little one. Each day includes fun-filled activities such as puppet shows, games, stories, crafts, sing-a-longs and tours. Children will have the opportunity to explore our Zoo in a fun, hands-on and exciting way. Each child will receive a certificate of completion, rewards and mementos for participating. Summer Safari classes have been especially designed to stimulate learning and encourage conservation. Let your kids have fun while enhancing their skills. Classes are available for children in grade levels pre-kindergarten through 5th grade. Space in camps and classes is limited; therefore, pre-registration is required. To register your child for a class, please call our Education Department at 956-548-WILD (9453) ext. 319 or download a registration form at www.gpz.org.
