School and Group Programs

Let our little "zoo" come to you for an unforgettable school day! We are offering small group, classroom, and assembly-style animal education programs to local schools, daycare centers, camps and more for children of all ages and group sizes. 

These programs involve presenting live animals such as reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates, providing a unique opportunity for children to learn about and interact with often misunderstood animals, their environments, and ecosystems. The goal of these programs is to bring natural science into classrooms, connecting children to the natural world around them. 

We are offering programs that may be booked as assemblies by grade bands, designed to integrate core curriculum and SEL at the appropriate level of participating students. We are also offering programs suited to smaller, individual groups or classrooms. If you need a customized program, we have the flexibility to develop programs suited to the specific needs of you and your students.  

The general program timeline is as follows (but can be adjusted as needed):

  • 45 minutes-1 hour for set up/arrivals

  • 45 minutes* of presentation time

    • Introduction, best practices for safety

    • Meet the animals: interaction with various species; learn about their environment, ecosystem, and lifestyle

See what people are saying about Reach Out Reptiles Experiences

"Hadley did an amazing job! I wasn’t expecting it to be that detailed of a presentation, it was great. I used to be scared of snakes but even I held a couple because she seemed so confident that they would stay calm if we stayed calm and were gentle with them. I learned a lot and really enjoyed it too, thanks again!"

     --- Chrissy D.    (In-Person Kids' Program)

"Garrett Hartle and Hadley were extremely personable and friendly, not to mention informative !!! We enjoyed seeing the differences in the snakes and we did decide to go with a his and hers- maybe at some point an “ours” as well. I can promise if you do the experience, your questions will be more than answered- maybe even some you didn’t think about! We cannot wait to make our purchase now- this was just a step in our journey and it was incredible!"

      --- Tonya B.    (Virtual Experience)

"Cannot stress this enough...have a ROR experience however possible!!! They're doing the reptile community right! Very knowledgeable and genuine! I believe ROR is one of the best in the industry regarding the conservation and evolution for the reptiles we love!"

     --- Chris H.    (In-Person Tour)

"My wife and I took our 8yo daughter to ROR for a private tour for her birthday. Garrett was an amazing host who, while keeping it fun and light for our daughter, still managed to deliver a ton of knowledge to us. I think we saw almost every snake there and got to handle many of them as well. My daughter told me it was the best birthday ever!"

     --- Paul M.    (In-Person Tour)

"We had the most amazing experience with Reach Out Reptiles for my son's 8th birthday party. They were so organized, knowledgeable, and amazing with the kids. My son had so much fun and him and his friends stayed very engaged during the entire presentation thanks to the wonderful staff. The entire process from booking to the day of went so smooth and was incredibly simple. Thank you ROR for hosting an unforgettable birthday for my son!"

     --- Tess T.     (Birthday Party)

"Our group had toddlers, primary aged kids, teens and adults. Everyone enjoyed the presentation! Getting to hold snakes and cockroaches was a highlight for everyone. The presentations of facts about each snake was entertaining. All forty of us give our field trip experience five stars!"

     --- Kate M.    (In-Person Kids Program)
