No school and not sure what to do?

Grab your backpack, lunch, and safari gear and join us at the Zoo for a fun-filled day of adventure. We will explore the far reaches of the world, seeking out some of nature’s most amazing animals. Instead of working on sight words, you will have animal sightings; instead of reading comprehension you will help others comprehend your discoveries by sharing stories about what you saw and did. Students in kindergarten through sixth grades, join us for Safari Days here at the Los Angeles Zoo.

All Safari Day dates correspond to certain LAUSD unassigned days and/or holidays, please make sure to check your child’s school calendar before registering.

FAQ

My child has participated in the last Safari Day, and wants to go again. Are all Safari Day programs the same or are they different?

All Safari Day programs are different. Each day/program brings a unique adventure for the children that are registered. The Safari Guides will also be different for each program. We strive to include a variety of enhanced experiences for the children so that they get a new element of adventure each time they come. One piece of the program that will remain the same is the idea of storytelling. We will continue to encourage kids (and parents) to create/write a story or draw a picture about their adventure and share it with us.

My child got an Adventure Backpack the last time they came. I am signing them up for another Safari Day, will they get another backpack?

If your child returns for additional Safari Day adventures, they will receive another “tool” to add to their backpack each time that they join us.

My child is signed up for another Safari Day do I have to fill out the Liability/Waiver form again?

We must have a new waiver form each time your child joins us for a Safari Day adventure. Waiver forms will be emailed to you prior to the program date and you can bring it with you to check-in.

I am signing up my child and they have friends that are also signing up. Can we request that they all be put into the same group even if they are different ages/grades?

Yes. Once you register you will receive an email with a link to a Google form. The Google form gives us the opportunity to collect some basic information about your child (grade, favorite subject in school, favorite hobby, etc.) There will also be a question that asks whether there is anyone that you would like to have your child grouped with. This is the ideal place to make us aware of your request.
