Halloween Activities for School Groups, Play Groups and Scout Groups
There’s nothing more frightening than a BOOring school field trip, Scout outing or play group activity. But have no fear because the fang-tastic Howl-O-Ween Harvest is here! Your group will have a spook-tacular time as they interact with and learn about some of our “creepy” critters (and some fluffy ones, too!), pick a mini pumpkin, and explore the Creepy Clinic.
SCHOOL TEACHERS: Take advantage of the 15% early bird discount PLUS an additional 10% off when two classes from your school participate in this program, as well an additional 5% for each class thereafter! Howl-O-Ween Harvest can be customized to incorporate STEM and meet NGSS for Grades Preschool–6.
ALL GROUPS: If your group brings at least 5 pounds of dry pet food or 5 cans of wet food (5 oz. or larger), you will receive 5% off per person; limit is up to 20% off per person. All donations will go to our AniMeals program, which delivers food to the pets of homebound seniors, military veterans and people with disabilities. We accept any brand of dog or cat food; food cannot be opened, expired or prescription-based.
**Maximum discount allowed per group is 50% off**
