Workshops for Individual Scouts

If you cannot get your troop together for a workshop program at the zoo, here is an opportunity for your girls to attend workshops individually. These fun, educational programs are designed to help Scouts earn their try-its, patches and interest projects. Each program includes: Zoo admission, guided zoo tour, train ride (seasonal-weather/facilities permitting), live animal presentation, booklet, workshop materials, and a zoo patch. Participants will also be treated to a pizza lunch and ice cream snack!
