What to bring
Adventurers should bring a packed lunch and snacks for the day, and a refillable water bottle. And to be prepared for all weather, we also suggest you bring a hat, sunscreen and wet weather gear, just in case. During the warmer months, with water activities in the program, your Zoo Adventurer may get wet throughout the day so a towel and change of clothes is recommended.
