Family Play Programs


During these programs, children learn through play with their favorite play partner: you! Artists, nature educators, and early childhood specialists planned these programs from the same principles used to design Hamill Family Play Zoo, which connects children and their families to wildlife and nature.



For ages 1 - 3 years

$88 per session for zoo members| $98 per session for non-members

Enjoy this hour-long “nature play group” that helps children make friends with nature through play experiences, songs, and meeting a weekly animal visitor.  

Session registration fee includes four weekly classes that take place at the Hamill Family Play Zoo. This program takes place rain or shine, so please dress for the weather, as some activites may take place outdoors as safety permits. Registration of one adult per child is required.
