Scout Workshops 

Scout workshops are available for every level of both Boy and Girl Scouts. Scout Days are scheduled throughout the year.

Let Knoxville Zoo make completing achievement, projects and requirements as fun as they should be!  And groups of 10 or more Scouts can schedule their own private workshops with special topics and dates.  Service projects are also available on an individual basis.


How to Register

  • Please complete our program reservation form OnsiteForm15.pdf and submit with payment two weeks in advance.  Once received, we will send you confirmation of your reservation via email.
  • On the day of your program, please print and bring a copy of your confirmation email with you; this will serve as your admission ticket into the zoo.
  • Please note that our programs have a limited number of openings.
  • A refund will be issued if your program is cancelled due to weather or for any reason by Knoxville Zoo.
  • Workshops are 1-2 hours in length.
  • All programs meet outside the front gate.

Patches

Boy Scouts

Knoxville Zoo will provide the filled out blue merit badge application cards.  If you need or wish to have these cards, please attach a sheet with the names of the attending scout to your reservation form and we will fill them out for you.  (Knoxville Zoo does not provide the actual badges for the programs.  All badges must be purchased from the BSA office.)

Girl Scouts

With the exception of the World in Our Hands Patch and the Specialty Animal Care at the Zoo Patch, Knoxville Zoo does not provide the patches for the programs.  All patches must be purchased from the Girl Scout office.  If you wish to present your girls with the patch on the day of the program, you will need to visit the scouting office prior to the date of your program.
