In return, the birthday child is able to adopt their favorite animal and receive special gifts dependent upon the level of money donated. The birthday child will receive a custom A.D.O.P.T certificate showcasing the animal of their choice. The birthday child and party guests will also make enrichment items for our Zoo animals, and hand deliver their creations to the animals’ keeper. For more information about our A.D.O.P.T program, please click here. *Party for a Cause is suitable for children turning ages 5 -12. Animal enrichment items for Party for a Cause are determined based on age of the child. All proceeds go to the welfare of our animals & are tax deductible.

Any items you bring for the party will have to be transported to and from the Club House by whoever is setting up/breaking down. Your day-of event coordinator will assist you with a push cart. How old does my child have to be? Our birthday parties are best suited for children turning 2 – 12 years old. What type of food/drinks can I bring? Dry snacks such as chips, pretzels, goldfish, etc. We recommend individually packed servings for easy clean up. Small fruit and veggie trays. No large party trays from grocery stores or restaurants like Chick-fil-a or Panera are allowed. (i.e. meat and cheese trays, sandwich platters, chicken nugget trays, etc.) Bottled water, soda, or juice. Please remember that no straws are permitted in the zoo due to animal safety hazards. No slow cookers or other electric food warmers are permitted. Can I bring cake? Of course! You can bring your own cake, cupcakes, or cake pops. We can even accommodate a cake drop off by your bakery if needed. What type of decorations can I bring? The only restrictions for decorations are: No balloons, piñatas, thumb tacks, or confetti/glitter (due to animal safety hazards). We recommend plastic tablecloths (as the tables will not be covered), as well as streamers, fun paper plates and cups. Does everyone have to have a ticket? Guests who are Zoo members may use their membership for admission and do not need a ticket. Guests who are not Zoo members must have a general admission ticket. Can I make changes to my party package? Unfortunately, no. All party packages are set and once purchased, cannot be refunded, removed, or traded for any discounts. This includes any add-ons and food as well. However, you are able to upgrade animals and purchase additional rental time, tickets, etc. up to the day before your party. Can parents drop off children for a party? Parents are not able to drop off their children for a birthday party. If you are not able to walk your child to the birthday party club house, or attend the party with your child, we recommend planning a carpool with other parents/families attending the party.
