The perfect gift for children who love animals – Knowsley Safari’s kids clubs!
Following the sold out success of the kids clubs this year, the 2018 dates have been launched with 10 per cent off when you book before Monday 18th December. There are three clubs to choose from ranging from ages 7-18.
Intrepid Explorers is for kids aged 7-10 and is a fun holiday programme where children take part in a range of activities exploring the natural world. Learning through play, the young explorers will take part in games, make crafts and get behind the scenes with Knowsley Safari’s keepers and animals.
Junior Rangers will take place on selected weekends throughout 2018 for kids ages between 11-14. Perfect for budding explorers with an interest in animals and conservation, they’ll work with Knowsley’s sea lions and giraffe. They’ll also head out onto the Safari Drive for a carnivore enrichment exercise and rhino experience.
Knowsley Academy is an intensive five day course for teens aged 15-18 looking to begin a career working with animals, wanting to become a veterinary scientist or with a passion for conservation. The Academy students work with the animal team to learn practical husbandry tasks, prepare enrichment activities and learn more about what it takes to look after animals.
Nikki Burton Mallott, Knowsley Safari’s Learning and Discovery Manager, says: “We’re encouraging kids of all ages to join in so they can understand the importance of the natural world and its many species but more importantly, how they can look after it.
“Getting so close to our animals offers an amazing opportunity for budding zoologists and animal lovers to feel even more engaged with the natural world.”
Please note: early bird offer is valid until 18th December.
