Price: €11.00 per head

Trained facilitators on site

Animal Behaviour Study:

During this study the students will observe their assigned animal and be tasked with making a suitable enrichment device. Students will give their device to their animal and observe the behavioral responses. Students will be assigned their animals prior to the visit as a small amount of research will be required. Students (and teachers!!) will then be able to meet some of our animals in an animal interaction session.


Secret Valleys orienteering is orienteering with a difference! This requires students team work and to switch on those thinking caps! Our purpose designed orienteering challenge involves both mental and physical stimulation and a bit of mud to create a memorable experience!

All students will be able to partake in both activities on the day.
