Suburban Camp: Forest Clubs at the ZOO
Are you looking for an alternative to computer games and just lying around? Join us and get out into fresh air with animals! The Forest Club offers children a week at the Brno Zoo where they will have lots of fun and learn camping skills.
The camp is located in the beautiful environment of the zoo. Children can look forward to watching animals, unforgettable experiences and making new friends.
The Forest Club base is a camp with large tents for individual posts. Each tent has firm flooring, a kitchenette and lockers. This is where the backup activities will take place in the event of bad weather.
The camp is situated on the zoo grounds, away from the main route for visitors, and thus provides the children with safety and privacy.
Let’s bring children back outdoors!
