Each session – from 9.30am to 12.30pm – will focus on a different animal theme.

Gemma Hilton-Tapp, from Drayton Manor Theme Park’s Education Team, said; “The zoo club is such a fantastic week and everyone involved thoroughly enjoys it.

“It’s always great for the children to have lots of fun while learning at the same time. Not only will our junior zoo keepers leave with some fantastic memories and huge smiles on their faces, but they will also have learnt a lot more about the fascinating world of animals.”

Only 15 places are available per sessions. Each session is £20 or all six can be booked for £100. For more details visit, or email
