Mini-Beast Detectives

This fantastic experience is an opportunity for your students to get up close and personal with our much-loved mini-beasts at Crealy Adventure Park. You will spend your time learning about your chosen topic and experience hands on sessions, quizzes and other interactivity.

The students will also have a time to explore and experience Crealy Adventure Park during this school trip.

What will happen on the day?

Our Education Officer will collect you from the coach, welcome you in to Crealy and take you to our very own animal barn. There, you will have a one-hour session with meeting 4 of our mini-beasts such as cockroaches, stick insects (most of which can be held or touched). This interactive session is a perfect combination of educational and fun,

Following on from the animal handling session will be an interactive mini-beast quiz with your students searching the animal barn in pursuit of answers.

After lunch you will meet again for one hour outside in our Wilderness area looking for native mini-beasts.

Free time to explore Crealy Adventure Park and experience our exhilarating rides before you leave. The Park closes at 5pm.

Cost: £9.95 per student
