EDventures at the Zoo

Groups of 15-30 students can sign up for an EDventures at the Zoo program. These programs are 30 – 45 minutes in length and themed to the specific habitat at which we meet. Each program is $60. Up to three programs can be scheduled a day. To learn more about specific themes, visit our EDventures at the Zoo Offerings Page

Zoo To You

The Zoo can also come to you! If your group of 15 - 30 students meets within 100 miles from the Zoo, a Zoo educator can come present one of our Zoo to You programs. These are about an hour in length. Each program is $75. Locations over 25 miles away, there is an additional $0.50 per mile fee. To learn more about the themes we offer, visit our Zoo to You Offerings Page.

Zoo Club

We are currently assessing what Zoo Club will look like in the future, but if you would like to be on a mailing list please contact schoolprograms@nczoo.org.  See below for what Zoo Club has entailed in the past.

Home School groups may become a part of Zoo Club by registering a group of at least 30 students. Programs are tailored for K-8 grades so Pre-K and 9-12 graders are not able to partake in this opportunity, but can look into EDventures @ the Zoo programming on the School’s webpage

A coordinator of the group will be responsible for securing an offsite location and getting together all the necessary information for registration. 

Each Zoo Club gets four total programs throughout the school year: 
•    Offsite Location = one in fall and one in spring
•    Onsite = one in fall and one in spring

Membership fees for 2019-2020 Zoo Club are $20 per child. These fees will cover the cost of all program components for the current school year (September - May). Individual fees are to be collected by the group coordinator and one check for the whole club sent in no later than August 31st, 2019. 

This program can travel to groups located up to 100 miles from the Zoo. For locations outside a 25-mile radius, a one-time additional charge of $.50 per mile, round trip will be added.

If you have any questions, please contact the North Carolina Zoo School Programs Office 336.879.7718; toll free 1.800.488.0444, ext. 7718, or email.
