Be A Keeper for the Day
Junior Keeper for the Day
7 – 15 years (with accompanying adult)
The perfect gift for budding zookeepers! Keen animal enthusiasts can enjoy an authentic zoo keeper experience, working directly with one of our keepers. We will do our best to tailor each experience to individual preferences to make the day extra special.
Junior keepers need practical clothing that is not too valued and some sort of coat/jacket (wellingtons not necessary). A Lakeland Wildlife Oasis t-shirt will be presented upon arrival for the experience, and a signed certificate at the end, to help you remember your day.
Please feel free to bring along camera to record the highlights. We will be more than happy to help you capture the best moments!
The session is for the Junior Keeper and one accompanying adult only. Participants have full entry to the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis for the rest of the day (though not restricted areas). Any other family or friends are welcome to come along on the day, but will be charged standard entry price and will not have access to staff areas.
Want to share the day with a sibling or friend? We now offer a joint booking for just £99!
Keeper for the Day
A fantastic day for any animal lover. As a small collection we are lucky to be able to offer a very varied keeper experience, where you can get involved in the husbandry of a wide-range of the animals we care for. We will do our best to tailor each experience to individual preferences to make the day even more special.
Please wear practical clothing that you do not mind getting dirty and some sort of jacket for outdoor work (wellingtons not necessary). A Lakeland Wildlife Oasis t-shirt will be presented to you upon arrival for the experience, and a signed certificate at the end, to help you remember your day.
