Boy Scouts

At the OKC Zoo, Go Wild!

Cub and Boy Scout Scout Badge Programs 2019-2020

  •  Cost: Our fees have changed!

    • $15 per Scout + 1 adult (cub scout pricing)

    • $8.80 for each additional adult

    • $6.40 per sibling (non-participant).

  • Price is per program and includes zoo admission.

  • Pre-registration required.

  • Workshop activities may include: guided zoo tours, meeting animal ambassadors, group activities, filling out worksheets, and craft projects. 


  • To keep our badge workshops scout-focused, we charge an additional fee for siblings and additional adults who would also like to attend.  This fee covers discounted admission into the zoo and the ability to observe the workshops.  Siblings and additional adults are only able to observe our badge workshops.  Scouts participate in the activities, thus receiving certificates of completion. 

  • Cub Scouts (Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelo) must be accompanied by a responsible adult for the duration of the badge workshops.  Boy Scouts may be dropped off and complete the workshop on their own.  Adults responsible for Boy Scouts must enter the education building to sign in their scout(s) and give contact information before the workshop begins.

  • Attention Cub and Boy Scouts!  Looking for a global conservation project to earn your World Conservation Award?  Join the OKC Zoo this September to help tag Monarch butterflies on their fall migration.  Scouts will be able to sign up for 3.5 hour volunteer shifts to learn about Monarch migration, proper butterfly catching and tagging techniques, and aid in valuable scientific and conservation research.  If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Brooke Troxell at btroxell@okczoo.org or 405-425-0638 to be put on a wait list to be notified when more details become available.
