Scout Programs: Group Visits

Join one of our experienced guides tour around Tanganyika. Scouts will visit several exhibits, learn about the animals, and have the chance to further their learning by asking questions.

What to Expect

A group visit to Tanganyika is the perfect way to have fun with your troop, pack, or den! Enjoy a walk on the wild side as your scouts – and their families – pet kangaroos, dance with Domingo, the hyacinth macaw, and observe our colobus monkeys jump and play. This is a great family activity for scouts of all ages.

Things to Know:

Our scout Group Rate includes:

  • Entry to the Park
  • 1 Animal Encounter per person (your choice of giraffes, lorikeets, or a Children’s Zoo animal)
  • A 30-minute Guided Tour (Monday through Friday only)

Add-Ons include:

Wildly Different Wristband:

• 1 feeding each at giraffes, lorikeets, and lemurs, 2 feedings at the Children’s Zoo

Encounter Pass Wristband:

• 5 feedings of your choice (of all available encounters)

Undercover Keepers:

• Held daily at 1:30 pm, this is a great way to get a behind the scenes look at how the Park runs. Activities might include making enrichment for the animals, entering our behind the scenes areas, and interacting with animals in different ways.

• There is a maximum of 15 participants for this program

Environmental Education Tip:

Boy Scouts of America and the Girl Scouts focus on building our children into community-conscious leaders. Giving scouts the opportunity to connect with nature can help build both leadership skills and enables them to make environmentally-conscious decisions.
