Fall 2022 Adventure Programs

Do you want to know what it’s like for a bird spending it’s time high up in the trees? Well now’s your chance! Join us for an aerial adventure course with Texas TreeVentures. Texas TreeVentures is a challenge by choice aerial adventure course in The Woodlands. The course is a series of physical challenges and adventure based elements. After going through Gear Up and Ground School with the instructors, we will spend several hours traversing the course. When we are finished we will have lunch at the near by park and then make our way back to the Zoo.

We will meet at the Houston Zoo at 8:30am and return by 3pm. Transportation will be provided by the Houston Zoo. Be sure to wear clothing that fits you well and does not allow anything to hang loose or get tangled in cables. Closed-toe, closed-heel shoes are required. Sneakers or hiking boots are recommended. Long hair must be pulled back and secured. Also be sure to bring a lunch and reusable water bottle with you.

Registration fee is $50 per teen.
