We are now taking bookings for our next three 3-day courses which will run from 3rd-5th April, 2nd - 4th August and 14th - 16th August 2017 respectively - See below for booking details!


What is DZP Rangers? 

The ‘DZP Rangers’ is a fully interactive, three day workshop that will have kids thrilled with animal encounters and activities designed to engage, educate and entertain.

Open to children aged 6-12 and available during all the school holidays, DZP Rangers provides parents with a fascinating, fun and educational alternative to childcare.

Led by fully qualified teachers and teaching assistants the three day workshops will keep the kids busy and entertained from 10:00am to 4:00pm.


What's Included?

There’ll be a host of fun activities and games with short educational sessions giving the kids a real insight into different aspects of zoo life, animal care and the importance of biodiversity in their very own back garden. The children will begin learning more about our exotic animals during a zoo day, discover more about the world around them with a native wildlife day and end with an exciting and educational survival day!

We’ll even take care of mealtimes with a choice of nutritious hot meals, snacks and drinks.

Every child will receive a unique DZP Rangers T-Shirt to show off to all their envious friends and on the final day they’ll be presented with a  graduation certificate by Benjamin Mee himself!

Places are strictly limited to 12 children per course, so don’t delay in booking a place talk to the education team today.

The small print...

While we try to allow as much animal interaction as possible with the Rangers, this will always be subject to the animals’ health and welfare at the time.

During peak holiday times it is not always possible for Benjamin Mee to be present at graduation ceremonies.

When dropping Rangers off, please be aware the Park remains closed to all public until 10am. Before this time, we are unable to take responsibility for any Rangers.
