On-site Girl Scout Badge Days 2023!

Spend a morning getting up close and personal with some of the zoo’s animal ambassadors while enjoying fun-filled presentations and activities. You’ll also be able to explore the entire zoo and complete the outdoors or animal related badge for your age group. After the program ends, your fun is not over. You can remain in the zoo until closing time with your group to see all the amazing animals we have to offer.

BONUS! Each Girl Scout will also receive a special activity patch for the day PLUS virtual worksheets and a companion video to guide your scouts through the activity. Actual badges and petals, if needed, should be purchased directly from the council.

 

Note: completing worksheets is not a requirement for the zoo day, and they can be completed at home at any time before or after the event. They are simply a  fun way to add more to your badge earning experience. Virtual materials will be emailed to the event registrant prior to your event date. Troop leaders are responsible for distributing emailed materials to troop members.
