Cheyenne Mountain Zoo Invites Public to Teddy Bear Day

August 9, 2019

Children who bring their favorite plush toy receive $10 off admission

Colorado Springs, Colo. (Aug. 8, 2019) – Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s 31st annual Teddy Bear Day is Saturday, Aug. 17 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Kids age 3 to 11 who are accompanied by a teddy bear, or other stuffed friend, get into the Zoo for just $9.75 (a $10 savings). As always, it pays to be a member – there’s no charge for members to get into Teddy Bear Day. Children 2 and under are just 75¢.

During Teddy Bear Day, children and their parents can visit the Teddy Bear Clinic located at Lodge at Moose Lake. Pediatric experts and volunteers from Children’s Hospital Colorado will provide x-rays, stitches and check-ups to stuffed animals. “Medical” procedures will be administered to injured stuffed animals. During the check-up, each bear will get a health evaluation and certificate of “Beary Good Health.” The clinic is a great way for kids to familiarize themselves with the health care community and what to expect if they need to visit a doctor, hospital or dentist.

There will be additional activities for kids at Lodge at Moose Lake, including the opportunity to meet some of the Zoo’s hands-on outreach animals. Plus, guests can also watch medical-themed animal care demonstrations and keeper talks throughout the day. A fire truck and ambulance will also be onsite for kids to learn about.
