Ever wonder what happens at the zoo once the sun sets? Scouts can work on scout requirements as they discover what really happens at the Zoo after dark! Our Scout overnights are designed by level so that Girl Scouts, Scouts BSA and Cub Scouts can earn their petals, badges, belt loops and pins.
Naturalist – Celebrating the Earth isn’t just for Earth Day-it’s for every day! During this three-hour workshop, you will begin your Naturalist Badge while meeting Animal Ambassadors, taking a guided tour of Kansas City, and taking a deep dive into the science of nature.
Think Like A Citizen Scientist – Anyone who asks questions and looks for answers is a scientist. That’s right: you are a scientist! Citizen Scientist have played a huge role in projects such as monitoring dolphins, revealing healthy bat populations and even protecting big cats in the wild. During this three-hour workshop you will begin your Think Like A Citizen Scientist Journey by meeting Animal Ambassador friends, taking a guided tour of Kansas City Zoo, and participating in citizen science projects right here at the zoo!
Environmental Stewardship – Nature is all around us! We play in it; we harvest from it; it gives us a home. During this three-hour workshop you will begin your Environmental Stewardship Badge by meeting Animal Ambassador friends, and taking a guided tour of Kansas City Zoo, and learning how to protect nature both locally and around the world.
Art In The Outdoors – Seneca the Younger said that “all art is but imitation of nature.” During this three-hour workshop, we’ll learn new art techniques, meet Animal Ambassadors, and take a guided tour of Kansas City Zoo. By the end of this workshop you will have created a beautiful work of art inspired by nature at the zoo!
