Launched in 2010, Beale Park introduced a limited series of 'Junior Keeper Experience Sessions', giving youngsters (10-17yrs) the chance to see behind the scenes and to meet the animals as they get up close and personal!
Feeding, cleaning and tidying of enclosures, are just a few of the many daily tasks that the kids can try their hand at; with sessions running throughout all school holidays.
Each two hour session will take place in the Park’s popular, Pet’s Corner, enabling the children to work with animal favourites such as rabbits, guinea pigs, chicks, pigs and goats; as they assist with all elements of their care. Tasks range from cleaning and enclosure maintenance to the preparation of bedding.
Dave Coles, Curator says “This is an ideal opportunity for children to work with various different animals and to gain an understanding of what is involved in caring for them.”
Prices: All sessions are £30 per child.
Please note that we do not run sessions on bank holidays.
