What better way to work toward a badge than to go on an adventure with the Zoo? Join us on a quest to answer questions like: How does the Ocean affect weather and climate? How do animals adapt to habitat loss? And what can we do the help the environment? Classes are two hours long and can be booked any day of the week or weekend with a minimum of five youth. (One adult is required to attend with a 1/10 ratio minimum requirement). Classes are open to all youth (check age requirements) and are geared toward meeting badge requirements while engaging students in hands-on learning.
Earn and learn and visit the Zoo at the same time. Private Girl Scout Classes cost $20 (2-hour course) per person for scouts and $12 for adults and must be booked a least three weeks in advance with a five-participant minimum. (Cost is $18 per scout if booked with an overnight experience). Zoo admission is included, and topics are listed below in the appropriate scout headings.
