Field Trip Guidelines

THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING THE MARYLAND ZOO FOR YOUR FIELD TRIP!

Please read the field trip planning guidelines below and follow the link at the bottom of the page to schedule your trip.


PLANNING YOUR VISIT

All students from Maryland schools, daycare facilities, home schools, and Head Start programs enter the Zoo for FREE when visiting as part of a pre-registered field trip. Groups receive free admission ONLY if they have pre-registered and have received their confirmation email and Field Trip Entry Pass.

The free field trip program is in effect from August 25, 2014 through June 19, 2015.

Students from summer camps and other summer programs, as well as students from outside Maryland, are not eligible for the free field trip program. They can, however, receive a discounted group rate by reserving their trip through our Group Sales Department.


TEACHER AND CHAPERONE PRICING:

One (1) adult is admitted free for every four (4) students in a group. Teachers are counted in the adult ratio.

Additional adults are offered a discounted admission rate:

Field Trip Date Additional adults
August 25 through April 30 $5
May 1 through June 19 $11

Zoo Members serving as chaperones may use their membership card to enter the Zoo free of charge.

The Zoo accommodates students with special needs by offering free admission for adults in the role of IEP-mandated 1:1 assistant.


PRICING FOR OTHER CHILDREN:

Siblings or other children joining a chaperone on a field trip may enter for a discounted rate of $8 per child. Children under the age of two are admitted free.


PAYMENT POLICIES

    • All participants must enter the Zoo as a group to receive free admission or the group rate. Teachers must collect any money from chaperones before their trip.
    • Payments can be made using cash, check, or credit card. Full payment is required for admission.
    • Checks should be made payable to The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore.
    • Refunds for check and credit card overpayments cannot be given on the day of your visit. Refunds will be issued only for overpayment of $25.00 or more and will be mailed directly to the school up to 90 days after your visit. There is a $25.00 processing fee for this service.
