Homeschool at the Zoo
Maryland homeschool groups (age 5 through grade 12) are eligible to participate in the grant-funded Free Field Trip Program.
Gather fellow homeschool families to enjoy an in-depth ZOOlab class or a Zoo Introduction program. ZOOlabs can accommodate up to 25 participants and are best for groups with students of the same or very close ages.
Does your homeschool group contain a wide range of ages? Guided Tours can accommodate up to 15 participants, from children to adults!
Looking for a creative experience for students ages 8 to 14? Check out our 2019 Junior Photo Safari series! Tickets go on sale in late Fall 2018.
