Little Peeps – Summer

Each Little Peeps summer class is two hours long, 9:30 to 11:30 am, and designed for 3- to 5-year-olds with a caregiver. Little Peeps will gather around for story time and make a take-home craft. During the class, we will visit one of our animal ambassadors. Class themes are the same for the whole week and you register for one class per week: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.

Summer Camp is currently unavailable due to COVID-19 precautions. Please check back for 2021 updates.


Little Peeps – Winter & Fall

This spring, each week in Little Peeps will be a new Creature Feature! Every time we meet, we will learn about a different kind of animal in-depth. We will look at or meet that animal here at the zoo and see what makes it unique and interesting up close.

  • Classes are held from 9:30 to 11:30 am
  • $30 per class for Sacramento Zoo members, $35 for non-members
  • Register for all six classes and receive a 10% off discount
  • Little Peeps class themes are the same each day, simply register for one day per week: Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.

NOTICE: Little Peeps classes are for a preschooler and up to two big buddy adults. The program is built for Peeps and Big Buddies to participate together. Siblings and other children are not allowed unless they are restricted to a stroller or a carrier on the big buddy at all times. We are in a small classroom, and want our Little Peeps participants to be able to fully enjoy the class!


We love Little Peeps! The staff are wonderful and my son learns and retains so much from every class. Meeting the animals is a very special experience for both my son and I. It was wonderful to see my son be able to learn and have fun in a safe environment - he loves participating!
