Zookeeper for a day
Ever dreamed of becoming a zookeeper? Here is your chance to find out what a day as a keeper is really like! Spend 5 hours helping with training animals, doing chores and interacting with some of our personable animals. There are only 4 campers per day, so it is an awesome one on one experience – lots of hands on and lots of FUN! You will learn more about the animals themselves and get to know the keepers too. Each camper will receive a photo with a bear, a photo with a beaver, an animal painting and we will also send out a USB stick with tons of photos and a short video, so you can show your friends and family everything you did on your special Zookeeper for a Day.
- Per person
Our annual Customer Appreciation event is held on the Saturday of the August long weekend every year. Come enjoy the day with the whole family – free pancake breakfast until 11:30am, free face-painting for the kids, all sorts of kids activities and toonie hot dogs! This year we have added a public market with clothing, jewelry, cosmetics, kitchenware and a whole bunch more! All of our regular presentations are still on, so bring everyone out for an awesome family day!
Winter Wolf Walks
Spend an hour walking with them through the snowy woods with our keepers. The keepers will take lots of photos for you and we will download them onto a USB and mail them out after your exciting winter adventure is done!
Please dress for the weather! You will be outside for the entire hour and the snow can be deep – proper winter boots are a necessity – no runners please! Participants can be 6 years old and up, but must be physically able to walk through deep snow and be outside in the cold for the whole hour.
Dates are flexible – please phone to book a date. All winter walks will start at 1:00 pm. Please do not arrive earlier than 12:45 pm.
We will not do these tours if the temperature is below -15C (the wolves love it, but you will freeze!) Only available from November to March. Please call us before you leave on the morning of your booking to confirm the weather here at the Park.

Night at the Zoo
FAMILY CAMPOUT AND FUNDRAISER
Join us for an unforgettable experience camping overnight in Discovery Wildlife Park! This is NOT our regular camping experience – Night at the Zoo includes much more. Evening guided tours with the owners and staff will ensure that you will learn more of the stories behind each animal as well as some hair-raising adventures! There is a silent auction with some amazing items up for bid – encounters with some of the baby animals, photo shoot opportunities, artwork, snow tours and many more. We have an exciting line up of animal friends that may visit the campfire in the evening as well! A great time to meet them up close and ask lots of questions. The campfire goes late into the evening with tales of the zoo from the early days until the present – this is a lot of fun and time for everyone to kick back and relax after a day of animal encounters. A wonderful Sunday morning breakfast is also included!
Mothers’ and Fathers’ days
Each year we celebrate our moms and dads by offering half price admission for them on their appropriate day! There are always other specials too – phone ahead to find out what is happening or check our Facebook page.
