You MUST be a New York State public, private, parochial or home-school program visiting the Zoo for an educational purpose. Pre-Kindergarten programs are also considered schools. You MUST have AT LEAST 10 individuals 3 years of age or older.
Before school, after school, summer recreation and daycare programs located within a school do NOT qualify as a school program (please see Group Rates).
One teacher or chaperone for every 5 students is free. Additional chaperones must pay the School Rate. Seneca Park Zoo members coming as part of a School Group Visit are charged the School Rate. In this case, they are not free because they are coming as part of this program.
A group is 10 OR MORE individuals who are 3 years of age and older. Seneca Park Zoo members coming DO NOT count toward the 10 or more in your group. In this case, they are free because they are members.
One chaperone for every 5 children is free. Additional chaperones must pay the Group Rate.
Please note: Forms must be submitted AT LEAST three weeks before your visit. Some dates fill up quickly. Be sure to provide a second- and third-choice date. If you are booking an animal presentation, tour or Expedition, you will be contacted to confirm.
