Scout Programs at Wildlife Safari Park 

Listen to the whisper of the grasses and the croaking of the frogs while learning about North American Wildlife. Scout programs at Wildlife Safari Park are a unique way to experience Nebraska without traveling from the Platte to the Panhandle. Programs consist of Scout Badge Classes, Eagle Scout Projects, Community Service Days, Citizen Science Workshops, Campouts and more. Bring your Troop and experience the "Great" outdoors.  
(Programs Support: Girl Scouts, Scouts BSA, Trail Life USA, Camp Fire, 4-H, FFA, Boys & Girls Clubs of American and others). 

Scout Badge Days

Badge days are pre-arranged events for Girl Scouts, Scouts BSA, or any youth. Aimed at individual youth and small troops that focus on badge work. Classes are scheduled on Sundays each month highlighting specific badge requirements and are held at the Wildife Safari Park near Ashland, NE. Each month a different program is featured.

All Badge Day participants will meet their instructor at the Education Building located in the Wolf Woods Parking lot.  Driving through the park to the Education Building can take some time so we ask that all participants arrive at the park at least 15 minutes before the class time. Fees are $20 per Scout and adults are considered chaperones. Pre-registration is required. 

Contact or (402) 738-6908 for more information. 

Fee: $20/youth  
Date: Scheduled Sundays from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.



Private Scout Classes

What better way to work toward a badge than to go on an adventure at the Park?  Join us on a quest to answer questions like: How do animals adapt to habitat loss?  How should I pack a day pack? And What can we do to help the environment?  Scout classes are two hours longs and can be booked on Saturday or Sunday at 10 a.m or 2 p.m.  
Scout classes are $20 per Scout and adults are considered chaperones. Fees covers Scout Class, supplies, and tours. If booking with a campout, Scout classes are $15 per scout and adults/others are free. A three week's notice and a minimum of five scouts are required.
