Scouts

From Boy Scouts to Girl Scouts, the Animal Park at the Conservators Center is the Perfect Place to Engage and Learn

Scouts are near and dear to our hearts, from Eagle Scout projects, to camp-outs, troop tours, and our signature Girl Scout Day. Come on out with your troop!

Troop Tours

Your personal guide will give you a unique look at the place our animals call home, and can answer questions across a broad range of topics. Group tours typically last 1 hour.

Group Tour Costs

There is a minimum cost of $200 (plus tax) for Group Tours during the week for up to 15 people, after which it costs $12 for each additional person (age 3+).   

All fees are subject to tax at a rate of 6.75%. For the definite cost for your group, please be sure to ask for an invoice once you have scheduled your tour.

  • If you need to cancel or change your tour time, you must give us 72 hours notice by emailing fieldtrips@animalparknc.org. If you do not provide 72-hour notice of cancellation or if you do not show up for your scheduled tour, you will waive your deposit.
  • All tour participants are required to sign our release form. Minors are required to have their form signed by their legal guardian, or they will not be permitted to join the tour.  Please make sure both sides of the form are completed.
  • Please consider check-in activities when planning your arrival time, and allow ample time for check-in and any necessary visits to the bathroom facilities prior to the start time of your tour. Please note that we do have limited bathroom facilities that can accommodate a limited number of people at one time.

Girl Scout Patch Program

Girl Scouts can earn a patch through our exclusive patch program, available only at the Animal Park. Please ask specifically for them when you schedule your tour, as they are not available to the general public.

DISCOVER- Girls understand themselves and their values and use their knowledge and skills to explore the world.
CONNECT- Girls care about, inspire, and team with others locally and globally.
TAKE ACTION- Girls act to make the world a better place.
