Looking for something to keep the kids (and adults) entertained in the Berkshire area? How about an animal encounter day at BCA Animal Management Centre. They now offer a range of amazing up close experience days including Meerkat encounters, primate encounters, reptile encounters, zookeeper days and Family Zoo Days. You’ll be spoilt for choice on what to go for.
On the animal encounter sessions you get to meet (and sometimes feed) the animals, have a keeper Q&A session, go on a tour of the zoo and you’ll get a certificate to take home with you. These experiences will be running on various dates throughout the summer holidays, you can book through the link below.
Address: BCA Animal Management Centre, Hall Place, Burchetts Green, Maidenhead, Berkshire, SL6 6QR

About the BCA Animal Centre:
Over the last few years, BCA’s Animal Management Centre (AMC) has had a large amount of investment put into it which has transformed it into one of the UK’s best college animal care facilities. In addition to the upgrade in facilities and resources, the AMC has worked hard in creating industry links that will benefit the learning of our students and provide an experience that is invaluable for them to be able to develop their own practical skills. The AMC houses around 1,400 individual animals consisting of 140 species. The AMC is broken down into five different sections so that students get the best opportunity to work with an array of different species, many of which are more familiar to a zoo setting: Exotics House, small mammals and kennels, farm livestock, zoo, British Wildlife. Other facilities and resources include dog kennels and a student workshop.
