Are you looking for a new way to experience Oakland Zoo with your child? Then come to our Teddy Bear Tea party! You, your child, and his or her favorite stuffed animal will enjoy a morning of, activities, play, and learning about bears. We will make enrichment gifts for the zoo's sun bears and watch them enjoy the treats we prepared. Your child will also receive a special Teddy Bear treat bag to take home. It'll be so much fun, you and your kids will hardly be able to bear it!
Our programs are very popular, so we recommend that you send in or email your request form 3-4 weeks in advance of the date you would like to reserve.
Payment is required at the time of reservation.
One change to your reservation date can be made as long as it is requested at least 14 days prior to your originally-scheduled program. Should you need to make a change, we will gladly work with you to reschedule a later date, if space is available, and any previous payments will be applied to the new reservation.
Please note that once you register and pay your fee, we are not able to offer refunds for cancellations.
