Elmwood Park Zoo’s variety of workshops for Scouts provides them with opportunities to complete most or all of the necessary requirements for several conservation, nature, and animal-related badges. Each 50-60 minute workshop promises hands-on fun and learning with planned activities and up-close experiences with the zoo’s animals. Groups can also add fun activities, such as animal feedings, visits to Treetop Adventures, and ZooSnooze overnight campouts to their visits. Scouts will receive a badge at the end of their program and can earn additional badges for adding on a ZooSnooze or Treetop Adventures experience.
Our Girl Scout programs are designed to teach your toop about the creatures around them through keeper talks, educational activities, and crafts, while completing a badge requirement.
Our programs give Boy Scouts the opportunity to participate in classroom activities, games, hike, and exploring the zoo as they work toward earring a scout badge.
