Do You Have a Mixed Age Group of Scouts?

If you have a scout troop/pack/den that has multiple age levels and our Snooze at the Zoo programs do not match your needs, you can schedule your own private scout overnight. When you schedule your own overnight we use the themes which we are currently offering but tailor them to match your needs. These overnights cost $40 per person and we require a minimum of 30 participants (this total includes scouts and adults) and a maximum of 60 participants.

Please contact Bridget Ebert, Overnight Programs Coordinator at (314) 646-4614 or ebert@stlzoo.org for more information.

Girl Scout Junior After School Badge Program

Do you want an exciting after school activity for your Scouts? Come to the Zoo for an after school badge program. The program includes a live animal presentation as well as other fun activities that are designed to meet all the criteria for your badge. Scouts completing the activities will receive their badge at the Zoo.

Animal Habitats Badge
A major part of understanding the animals we love and knowing how to help them is by understanding where they live. For this badge, we will dig deeply into the world of wild animals through observations and activities. Then we will study why their habitats are so important and what we can do to save and protect habitats.

Who registers: Girl Scout Junior Troops (max. 25 scouts and adults)
Times: Classes are offered on weekdays from September to May
Fee: 60 minute program is $100
