Want a unique, fun place for your scouts to work on their badges? Then look no further than the North Carolina Zoo! We offer a variety of badge programs for girl and cub scouts.  Scouts will earn their badges through educational hands-on activities, meeting some live animals, and getting creative with some make and take crafts!

Scout programs are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. There is a maximum of 25 scouts and a minimum of ten scouts per program.  Groups exceeding the 25 scout maximum may split their group and book two programs on the same day.  Fees and time lengths vary depending on program option.  Prices for the programs do not include admission to the Zoo, however admission is required to get into the area where the programs will be held.  The Zoo does not provide the badges. 

 

Scheduling a Program

If you would like to schedule a scout badge program for your group, please complete the following steps:
