Junior Rangers badge**Now varies each day so join one day or the whole four!**

Book now to enjoy our fascinating and fun Junior Rangers school holiday programme. Themed full-day and half-day options will leave your adventurous 5-12 year olds buzzing about our amazing ecosystems.

Zealandia runs a unique full day Junior Ranger holiday programme for children aged 5-12 years in the January, April, July and October school holidays. Your child can also join one of our programmes just for the morning, or the afternoon if time is limited. A simple wholesome lunch and morning and afternoon teas are an optional inclusion.

Unique fun

Our day programmes are filled with fun and environmentally-themed educational activities, most of which can only be enjoyed here at Zealandia – explore the wonders of our exhibition, learn about being a ranger, go treasure hunting and feed eels in our sanctuary valley, play games and have some movie or arts and crafts relax time.

“The kids enjoyed, in fact, raved about it!”

What to bring

All you need to bring is weather appropriate clothing, sun/wind protection, sensible shoes and plenty of energy. Please be aware that our full-day programme is a busy one and may not suit all children.

“She had a great day and I congratulate you on an inventive and active approach to offering a safe and informative childcare programme.”
