Check dates for an appropriate assembly experience for your grade. Each assembly can accommodate up to 150 students (different schools may be combined into one assembly) and is approximately 45 minutes in length.

Compliance with the chaperone policy is required to remain eligible for the discounted school group rates.

  • Every school group visiting Denver Zoo must have at least one adult per ten students, regardless of the students' ages. Schools who do not bring at least one adult per ten students will be charged the full price of admission.
  • Please be advised that there is a maximum ratio of one teacher/chaperone for every five students that may attend any scheduled programs.

  • We only accept ONE payment for the entire group.
  • All chaperones must enter the zoo at the same time as the group. Late arrivals will be required to pay the full price of admission or use their zoo memberships.
