On Saturday, Aug. 17, 2019, Girl Scouts in uniform will get FREE admission at the Kansas City Zoo as part of Girl Scout Day at the Zoo. Those who are accompanying them will get in for $7 each. That’s more than half off of regular adult admission price.
Activity stations will be set up in the lobby from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. A limited edition Kansas City Zoo patch will be given to the first 200 Girl Scouts who arrive that day.
This is a rain or shine event so dress accordingly.
