Big Cat Rescue Kids Tour

Enjoy the Kids Tour at Big Cat Rescue! If you want to bring children under the age of ten, this is the only tour available for your group, (other than the much more expensive Private Tour). This is a complete guided tour where children of all ages and their parents can get up-close and learn about exotic cats and other animals. Children under the age of 10 cost $19 each Tour Time is noon on Saturdays and Sundays. Geared toward children under 10 years old. Privately guided small tour groups of 20 or less. Tour is one hour long & children are expected to behave because this is a working sanctuary and the animals come first. Children must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian and must behave respectfully toward the animals and others in the group. This is not a zoo where children will be allowed to scream and run wild, but a sanctuary where the animal’s needs always come first. You are welcome to take photos and video on the tour, but leave the tripods at home, or schedule a photo tour. We ask everyone on the tour to stay together, no smoking, no cell phones and respect the tour guides warnings so that you have the best possible experience. Paths are frequently muddy so closed toed, old, comfortable shoes are recommended. You may bring your own cold drinks or buy ours but either way, be prepared for the heat.

The Main Street Kids Club: A Mathstart Musical

As the curtain opens, we meet Toby, the new kid in town as he lets us in on his little secret. He desperately wants to be a part of the Main Street Kids’ Club. With a motto of “math skills equal life skills”, the M.S.K.C are the coolest kids in town. The problem is that he isn’t especially confident in his math skills, so he can’t get in the club. When Toby finds a treasure map, the members of the exclusive club change their tune. Together with the audience the kids embark on a thrilling journey with math lessons along the way. Inspired by the award-winning series by Stuart J. Murphy, THE MAIN STREET KIDS' CLUB: A MathStart Musical tells a tale of adventure, mystery, friendship and math. Six stories, each focusing on a different mathematical concept, have been deftly woven together and adapted by Scott Ferguson (SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK LIVE!).
