Cub Scout Saturdays

Learning Adventures

Bring your Cub Scout or Cub Scout Den for fun-filled activities at the Zoo!

Class registration and ticketing close 24 hours before class start time.

Cub Scouts work toward earning one of their required adventure badges in these 1 ½ hour programs. These are great for smaller dens or individual Scouts. Multiple Den capacity allows for collaboration across different Packs.

Please dress for the weather and wear closed-toe shoes. Please bring a water bottle clearly marked with the scout’s name.  Classes begin and end in the Cargill Learning Center.

Please note that these programs require each participant to have a ticket.  No tagalongs or siblings will be admitted to programs.
