Fun for the whole family...we have activites for all ages. Bring your family to the Zoo — check out the adventure backpacks, then play and learn together or check out a Zoo Trunk and continue the fun and learning at home.
Plan an adventure to the Zoo with the whole family! We even have programs on weekday evenings and weekend days.

The Zoo is such a great place for families to explore and tour, especially behind the scenes! Share these tour experiences with your wives, husbands, kids or grandkids! These programs are 90 minutes long. The fee of $8 for members / $10 for nonmembers covers two people ages 5 and above. Additional people are $4 each. Classes are held from 10:00 a.m. - Noon. Registration is now open for all classes.
Thanks to a generous grant from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and Disney, Sedgwick County Zoo is able to host monthly Get Into Nature Family Activities. There is no cost to the activity but space is limited so you must pre-register for each program. Events will be led by Zoo staff and include structured and non-structured nature play time. The program is open to all ages but children must be accompanied by participating adults.
