REGISTRATIONS

What do we do?

At this camp, boys and girls will learn through participation and fun about the daily lives of the animals and the people who take care of them.  Every day there will be a new and different topic on the Zoo: where the animals are from, what they eat, what their relationships are like and everything their caretakers and veterinarians do to ensure their wellbeing. Boys and girls will also visit their sleeping lairs, watch and help the caretakers to prepare the animals’ meals, enrichment activities and other tasks, up close and personal with the animals. The Zoo as you’ve never seen it before!

Children will also have the option to draw the animals that they see, participate in educational games and do craft activities to take away a great souvenir of their day at the Zoo, always accompanied by Zoo educators, all professionals in the field of natural sciences and with extensive experience in teaching and fun, as well as being very responsible and engaging!

Documents required to register

After registering, you must bring this documentation to the Zoo Department of Education:

  • Registration and authorisation form signed by the child’s mother, father or legal guardian
  • Photocopy of the large family card (if applicable)
  • Photocopy of Zoo Club membership card (if applicable)
  • Photocopy of disability certificate (if applicable)

 

All of these documents must be brought for each of your children.

Useful information

  • Children must enter and exit through the door of the Zoo Department of Education at Passeig de Circumval·lació 3 in Barcelona

 

  • On the first day the kids will be given a list when they arrive to give to parents with the name of their educator and the classroom where they will be during the camp. On the following days you can go directly to the classroom both for dropping off and picking up the kids. It is extremely important for you to tell the camp manager or educator if your child will be picked up by a specific person.

 

  • The Zoo has a doctor on hand after 10 am, who will handle any medical incident that could arise.

 

  • Lunch is cooked at the Zoo kitchens and served at approximately 12.30 pm at one of the restaurants on the grounds. If your child must follow a special diet or has any type of allergy, please make sure you write this down on the registration form. You can check the menu here.

 

  • If your child must be given any medication, an authorisation form must be completed.

 

  • Mothers/fathers who would like further information on the activities at the Zoo camps or on the adaptation of your child can talk to the educator of your child’s group or the manager of the camps whenever you would like. The best time is at 9 am or at 4 pm.

 

  • Some of the programme's activities may be suspended or have the day changed for causes related to handling the animals.
