Halloween Activity Camps – Now Open for booking!

Mid-term 2018 sees the return of the hugely popular activity camps from Wed 31st October to Friday 2nd November from 10 am to 3 pm daily. The Halloween camps are suitable for children aged between five to 12 years old – the fully supervised activity days cost €28 per single day or €75 for the three days per child.

The activity camps are varied and challenging, with fun as the main element! The Fota Wildlife Park Education team focus on a different concept each day, such as spooky arts and crafts, woodland exploration or an opportunity to learn about the various animals in their care. They approach all of these areas through play to enable the children to develop new skills and knowledge while having a great time.

If your children love animals, Fota Wildlife Park is the perfect place to nurture this and spend time with some fascinating creatures. Children will learn about many different species and gain an understanding of the importance of conserving diverse species of animals and plants across the world.
