Scout Opportunities

Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo provides many opportunities for Boy and Girl Scouts. Troops will discover the fascinating world of zoology, ecology, and much more through a wide variety of programs. Join the Zoo on a trip around the world- starting right here in Florida and traveling to the distant lands of the Asian Gardens, Primate World, Wallaroo Station, and Safari Africa. Troops can even spend the night at the Zoo with one of our Sleepovers! All programs are educational and create unforgettable natural connections to the world around us.

Program Information:
  • Zoo Adventure Tours
  • Animal Careers Workshop
  • Reptiles and Aquatics Workshop
  • Inside Look Tours
  • Sleepovers
  • and Much Much More!

Group ticket rates are available so your Scouts can visit the Zoo as a group of 15 or more.
