Birthday Parties

To make a birthday party booking, please review all of the details outlined below before sending an email to Karlee at [email protected]

Due to COVID-19, some protocols have changed.

Private bookings are available, however, they are held in the Party Room and all guests 5+ must wear a mask. The group maximum is 15 people (including two adults minimum).

Treating your child to an educational birthday at the Victoria Bug Zoo will help them foster their curiosity, understand the value of treating other living things with respect, and expose them to the wild diversity of the lesser-known animals on our planet!

An  birthday booking at the zoo will run two hours. The first hour is a private tour in the Party Room with of our knowledgeable guides, and the second hour is for presents and snacks. Our presentations  are no longer hands-on due to COVID-19, but a wonderful Educator will hold a private Bug Show-and-Tell for you. Cleaning supplies are provided to help clean up after your booking. Feel free to decorate the place! Trash must be taken with you.

Add-ons: Goodie bags for all the children attending $7+ tax each (must give one-week notice if you would like goodie bags)

Please note that all birthdays must be booked at least 2 weeks in advance. A deposit of $50 is due two weeks prior to booking and is non-refundable. Payment is due in full one day before the event. This can be done online or in store.

The birthday booking has a base rate of $175 plus tax and includes up to ten children and two adults. If extra children or adults wish to come on tour, we offer a discounted admission at $5.00 each. At this time, we are not charger extra additional guests up to a maximum of 15 people. The Party Room currently has a capacity for 15 guests and one Educator. All those 5 and up must wear a face covering at all times.

We require at least two weeks’ advanced notice to accommodate your request, and we are now shifting to a prepaid process so you can focus on the experience, rather than invoices, on your child’s big day! You will pay two days prior to your event through our secure online payment portal.

To inquire about booking availability, please email Karlee at [email protected]. What we need from you is an estimate of your group size, the age range of the children, a phone number to reach you at, and a request for the date and time of the party. We do our best to accommodate your requested date and time, but flexibility is appreciated as sometimes the requested time is already booked.

Tips for your tour guide are never expected but always appreciated.
