School Field Trips

These trips are available to teachers or educators during the school year as part of an educational curriculum. During the summer, all groups can use the Group Excursion rates HERE.

Our Field Trips are set up to make educational excursions easy and fun! When you pre-register your class or school, you get students, teachers, and chaperones at a huge discount!* We just ask that you give us two weeks advance notice, and have at least ONE adult supervising every 10 students. (*Cannot be used in conjunction with memberships or other discounts.  Adults using their Jackson Zoo membership or a Groupon will have to be admitted separately.)

ADULTS ages 13 and up: $5.00 each

CHILDREN ages 2 to 12: $3.50 each
