My son loved the class. All fees associated with the parent remaining with the child should be made clear. It should clear say that parent must purchase a ticket as well!

My son loved the class! The issue I had was with coursehorse. It should be made extremely clear that the parent has to pay an additional fee for him/ herself along with the class fee for the child. Not that the parent must remain with the child. It leave you to assume that as long as you pay for your child ticket and is willing to stay on premises that it only one fee related to the class.

Attended: Zoo Views (Ages 18+)


Not so much a photography class inasmuch as a photo opportunity! Judy and the team at the Zoo were a pleasure to spend the morning with. Having the opportunity to experience the zoo prior to the public opening was worth the price of admission alone. For the Valentines event, heart shaped treats in prime locations were provided to the animals once our group was situated leading to wonderful photo opportunities. The group was a good size, with enough viewing spots to not need to climb on-top of each other. Admission tickets were provided at the end for those wishing to spend additional time at the zoo. Will definitely be back!
