Spring Break Zoo School

Looking for a fun way for the kids to spend time during spring break? Come to Spring Break Zoo School at the Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park! Kids will learn about animals that spend time bumming the beaches, navigating winding rivers and flying through tropical rainforests, all without leaving town. We’ll be seeing animals at the zoo, playing games, making crafts to bring home, meeting new friends and sneak some learning in there as well!

Spring Break Zoo School will be held during Binghamton City School District’s spring break, April 2-6, and split into two sections. April 2-3 will be for children aged 5-7, and who are currently in school (no pre-Kindergarten, please). April 4-6 will be for youth aged 8-13. Zoo School will be held from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm with a supervised lunch break. On April 2 & 3, children can also be registered for half day sessions, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, with each session featuring different activities.

Registration is required and it is day by day. Full day registration is $30.00 for zoo members and $40.00 for non-members. Half day registration is $15.00 for zoo members and $20.00 for non-members. Before and after care is available for up to 30 minutes at $8.00 per 30-minute time block.
