Què farem?

For hundreds of years people have imagined fantastic and mythological creatures. Some are very different and really curious, while others are wild and terrifying. Many are a mix of different real animals, while others are animals with exaggerated features but they are all based on real ones. You will discover the beasts that fill our imagination at this camp, along with the animals that inspired them.

Documents required to register

Once the registration has been made, it is essential to deliver the following documentation to escolazoo@bsmsa.cat:

  2.    Photocopy of large family card (if applicable)

  •     You must bring all the documentation for each of your children.
  •     It is mandatory to send all the documentation by e-mail (escolazoo@bsmsa.cat), at most, 10 days before the start of the event.
  •     The original signed documentation must be submitted on the day of the start of the event.
  •     In the event that all the documentation is not delivered within the indicated deadlines, the pre-reservation will be automatically canceled.

What to bring?

Boys and girls should wear comfortable clothing suitable for the time of year. We recommend that they bring a change of clothes, a cap, and that sun protection is applied at home (although there are many shady places in the Zoo, they will not always be sheltered from the sun). In summer, they should bring a swim costume, sandals and a towel, as-–weather permitting—they can have a swim during break time.

Children should not bring valuable items like mobile phones, videogames, cameras, money, etc.

From around 10 to 10.30 am, we take a short break and, if you like, you can give your children a light snack for this time.

Useful information

  • On the first day the kids will be given a list when they arrive to give to parents/responsible persons 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 on the first day if the participant will be picked up by other persons and provide their names and identity card numbers.
  • The Zoo has a doctor on hand after 10 am, who will handle any medical incident that could arise.
  • Lunch will be served at about 1 pm at one of the zoo’s restaurants. If your child has to follow a special diet or has some sort of allergy or intolerance, don’t forget to note it down on the registration form and email a medical report to zoodebarcelona@aramark.es, explaining the problem so the catering service can deal with it, at least 10 days before the zoo's holiday camp starts.
  • If the participant must be given any medication, an authorisation form must be completed so that the Medical Service can administer it.
  • Some of the programme's activities may be suspended or have the day changed for causes related to handling the animals.
