Cub Scouts

In order to properly sanitize between programs, we will be offering a limited number of Private Tours per day, to a limited number of guests per program.

Introducing children to the wonders of wildlife and the places they call home is one of our great joys here at the Endangered Wolf Center. That’s why we’re excited to offer a number of programs to help Cub Scouts achieve their merit badges while enjoying the enriching experiences that come with them.

Programs are offered daily except Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Reservations are required. Each program is offered at a rate of $12 per scout, parent and siblings, and up to 2 troop leaders are free. Please note there is a minimum $60 fee required to schedule a program. Please note, programs with tours around the animal habitats may be altered in the Spring to accommodate the arrival of puppies.

Private Evening Programs are offered Wednesday through Saturday evenings at a rate of $20 per scout, parent and sibling, with 2 free troop leaders. Please plan on bringing your own water and food to cook over the fire, otherwise check our calendar for public evening programs.
