Although similarly structured to the S.A.Fari Kids and S.A.Fari Explorer clubs, the Adventurers program is designed specifically for middle and junior high students that are really interested in animals, the environment and the Zoo. Like the other programs, we’ll discuss and investigate our topic, meet animals and tour the Zoo, but we’ll also have the opportunity to talk to Zoo Experts and explore participant’s passions and questions. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend regularly for a continuous learning and relationship experience. Drop-off program, adult attendance is not required.
