Zoo programs keep kids entertained and learning

Submitted By Oakland Zoo

Kids need a night out? Parents need a night off? Oakland ZooÕs ÒKids Night Out! ParentÕs Night Off!Ó is a program designed with adults in mind Ð we offer a safe, fun-filled environment where you can drop off your children knowing they will have a blast playing and learning about wildlife. On Saturday, December 16, we will feed them and take them on a guided walk in the zoo to see all of ZooLights! Afterwards, we will head back to our auditorium to meet an animal up-close and play some games. We end the night with a movie on the big screen. We guarantee you will pick your child/ children up happier, smarter, and exhausted! ItÕs a win-win all Ôround! Cost is $45 per child and $30 for each additional sibling. Pre-registration is required, contact Paula Booth at (510) 632-9525, ext. 220 or

The zoo also offers three Winter ZooCamp sessions beginning Wednesday, December 27:

Zoofari: Join us for a three-day expedition around the Oakland Zoo. WeÕll tour zoo exhibits, make treats for the animals, play games, sing songs, get to meet some animals up close, and make new friends. This program is a great introduction for kids who have not participated in our full-week summer camp. For our returning campers, weÕve included some of our most popular activities. Just remember, when animals are involved, youÕll never have the same experience twice.

Family, Friends & Flocks: Who keeps you safe? Who gives you good food? Who tucks you in at night? Many animals help and care for their families in all kinds of ways.

Animals in Winter: What do animals do when winter sets in? They donÕt have the Weather Channel app, but animals instinctually know how to survive in the wet and cold. Learn how animals are adapted for the dark, cold, winter season.
