The Denver Zoo has new programs for children and their families

Going to the Denver Zoo is always a sure fire way to have a great time with the family.  There are lots of animals to see and learn about as well as feeding times to watch and a train and carousel to ride too.  However, there are also many fun programs that the zoo offers to children of various ages that will help them learn more about the zoo and its residents.

There are many zoo camps that are offered during school breaks, giving parents an alternative option for their children while they are at work as well as providing something different to keep kids entertained,  There are even overnight visits available for families and groups.  What a great way to learn something new and have fun at the same time!

Additional programs include a book club for the younger age set, as well as activities for toddlers, 4 and 5 year olds, and kids 6 to 8  years old.  A new program for the 9 to 11 year old age group is the DZ Naturalists where kids can learn about environmental issues.  Even teens can head to the zoo for some fun and education with a variety of programs including volunteer work, career information and much more!  And finally, another new program gives children and their parents the opportunity to spend a morning with a zookeeper and learn what his or her job entails. 

No matter what age your children are there a so many options at the Denver Zoo to get involved, have some fun and learn something too!
