Monkey around at Newquay Zoo’s new summer camp

This summer, Newquay Zoo is inviting children to go wild during their new two-day summer activity events.

The new Wild Days events will be packed full of fun and adventures for animal-loving children aged between seven and 11.

Newquay Zoo is home to hundreds of species, including zebras, penguins, lemurs, sloths and many more amazing animals.

Participants will be able to get up close and personal with Newquay’s unique animal collection, and even go behind the scenes with the keepers, getting stuck in with everything from feeding time to mucking out.

Children will even be able to have a go at making enrichment activities for the animals – to see them use their natural instincts in different and challenging ways.

There will also be a range of games and trails around the zoo, along with craft activities, making pieces to take home and keep as a memento of the day.

Mark Norris, Newquay Zoo Education Officer, said:

“We’ve been running Wild Week activities at our sister site, Paignton Zoo, for many years now, and they sell out quickly every year. We’re hoping that the Wild Days camps at Newquay will be just as much of a hit.”

Newquay Zoo will be running two Wild Days events over the summer holidays. One takes place on the 21 and 22 August, while the other takes place on the 28 and 29 August. Activities run from 10am to 4pm each day.

Tickets to the two-day events cost £95 per child, and £80 for additional siblings as well as Newquay Zoo Members. Places are limited, and are only available to book online. To secure your place, go to: https://www.newquayzoo.org.uk/wild-learning/wild-days/
