During RZSS Spring and Summer Schools, children discover the amazing animals, habitats and cultures of different places around the world. All of this learning happens through a range of fun activities such as zoo trails, games, arts and crafts, animal handling, building enrichment devices and much, much more!
‘In 2017, for the 20th anniversary of Summer School at RZSS Edinburgh Zoo, the theme for our holiday programmes will be Africa, which was the first ever theme back in 1997.’
Whilst the Spring and Summer School have the same theme each year, activities will vary across the two holiday programmes so that parents may book their child(ren) onto a week of each.
