Girl Scout Day, Saturday, June 6th

Mark your calendar for the 2015 Girl Scout Day event.

The Girl Scout Day event is a day when scouts of any age can visit the zoo and enjoy “extra” educational and fun activities in our Classroom.  These activities are free with zoo admission.  No registration is required for the event.  Every zoo visitor is welcome to participate in the activity stations, many of which will be focused on water and ocean conservation issues, in honor of World Oceans Day, which is held annually on June 8th.

Activities will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Education Classroom, located inside of the Education & Conservation Center building. Activities will be varied, but examples include things like games and crafts that children can participate in while learning something about water/ocean conservation.  There will be at least one station “geared towards” at least one of each girl scout age group, from Daisies to Juniors; however, all stations will be available for all ages, and visitors do not have to be scouts to participate in these fun and educational activities.  Activity stations will allow scouts to check off requirements for different badges.  Handouts will be provided in the Education Classroom with more details.

The zoo will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and the Adventure Park will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Girl Scout Day

The NEW Zoo & Adventure Park is pleased to announce the hosting of our fourth annual “Girl Scout Day” event. The event will take place on Saturday, June 7th, from 10am to 2pm.

The Girl Scout Day event will offer a variety of activities for scouts of all ages to participate in and enjoy. This year’s activities will be especially focused on oceans and water conservation topics, in honor of World Ocean’s Day on June 8th. All girls are welcome to participate in any of the stations. Girls who are not currently enrolled in the scout program can also learn more about the opportunities available, and register to become a Girl Scout when they arrive. Additional stations, aside from those focusing on water topics, will also be offered by the local Girl Scout council. There will be fun opportunities for all!

A NEW Zoo “panda patch” will also be available for scouts to purchase in the Paws & Claws Gift Shop.

Any zoo guests can participate in these activity stations – not just girl scouts! So don’t miss this celebration in honor of our World Oceans. The Girl Scout Day event is free with zoo admission.
