Scout Programs

The Education Department offers many opportunities for scouts to enjoy the Zoo and learn about the animal world! Programs range from a 45-minute classroom program to a sleepover at the Zoo. Programs may include live animals, biofacts, activities, games, tours, or crafts. Plus, we offer a variety of programs that help scouts work towards their badge requirements!
