Scout Programs

Meet various badge requirements with the help of WOLVES! The WCC's education programs can be tailored to meet several Girl Scout and Boy Scout badges, but the troop leaders make the final decision as to whether or not badge requirements have been satisfied. Program start times and lengths are badge-dependent, as are group sizes.

A scout group can also opt to reserve the WCC's "general" education program rather than reserving one of the below programs. These programs are roughly 1.5 hours in length, and visitors will learn about wolf history, diet, behavior, and more while viewing the WCC's gray wolves. There's also the potential chance to observe some of the critically endangered red wolves and endangered Mexican gray wolves that reside at the WCC.

The program fee is $14 for adults and $11 for children under 12; if there are fewer than 15 people in attendance we charge a flat rate of $200. These programs are offered Tuesday - Friday, pending availability.
