Zoo Chefs

Check out our new cooking class for children ages 5-6 years with an accompanying adult!  This class will be similar in structure/content to Zoo Tots Cooking but the activities will be geared towards slightly older kids. 

Join your favorite furry, feathery, slimy, and fuzzy animal friends in an exciting, hands-on adventure during which you and your child will make a creative, tasty treat and participate in fun activities.  These classes also include stories, activities, zoo exploration, craft and visits from live animals.
