Family Edventure Programs

Families can explore the natural world together during the Virginia’s Zoo’s Family EdVenture Programs. Each educational adventure will focus on a different theme and include activity stations, a visit from an animal ambassador and crafts that make learning fun for the whole family. Activities are developed for children between the ages of 2-12 although all ages are welcome to attend as these programs are designed for the whole family. Participating children must have an adult chaperone registered for the program with at least one adult for every three children who attend.

Jump, slither, climb and crawl your way to the Zoo as we explore the ways of locomotion and how animals move throughout the Animal Kingdom. We’ll also learn more about some animals that move large distances and migrate to different areas of the world!
