Animal Clubs

Experience days & holiday clubs at our Brinsbury campus

Animal Experience Day

Our animal experience days give you the chance to get hands on with the amazing animals we have here at Brinsbury. Help feed and groom our goats, give our rabbits and guinea pigs a health check, and get really up close and personal with our frogs, snakes, lizards and lots more species.

Small groups on the day mean that everyone gets a chance to interact with the animals and no one misses out. And at the end of the day you’ll even get a certificate and photographs to take home. Perfect for animal lovers of all ages!
 

What will you do on the day?

  • Learn how to look after and care for a range of animals, including goats, rabbits, gerbils, stick insects, frogs, snakes and bearded dragons
  • Feed our pigs
  • Take some ferrets for a walk
  • Groom our wonderful goats
  • Give out Giant African Land Snails a bath 
  • ...and much more!
