Here at Corral Critters, we recognize that we have some pretty adorable animals (if we do say so ourselves!). However, unlike other petting zoos, we are committed to going beyond simple animal interaction. While petting animals is an important part of the experience here, our goal is that every visitor departs our farm knowing much more about our hooved, pawed and feathered friends than when they arrived.
Choose from one of our two standard packages, pair them together, or let us customize an experience around your latest lesson plans or badge requirements.
Does your language arts curriculum include Charlotte’s Web or Black Beauty? Are you working through science standards related to animals? Let us design an experience around your current lessons! Corral Critters can even satisfy math curriculum; for example, we’ll teach you how to calculate the height of a horse (measured in “hands”)!
Whether you’re looking to meet badge requirements (including Animal Helpers, Animal Habitats and Horseback Riding) or custom-tailor a more individual and unique experience, we are happy to work with troop leaders at every scouting level to ensure all of your goals are met.
** Optional add-on: Watch one of our riders take a horse through its paces (walk, trot, canter) and over a jump!
