Scheduling Your Trip

Please review and complete the Field Trip Registration Packet, also found at the bottom of this page. Once your field trip registration has been received, the Zoo will send you a confirmation. At the bottom of the confirmation is a section you can fill out on the day of your field trip with the number of students and adults in your party, which should be given to the Admissions Cashier upon entering the Zoo. You can pay for your Potawatomi Zoo Field trip using cash, check, Visa, or Mastercard. If you would like to use a purchase order, you need to contact the Zoo’s Guest Services Manager prior to your field trip by phone at (574) 235-7620 or email ksnowden@potawatomizoo.org. Potawatomi Zoo Memberships may be used, but the Admissions Staff will need to see the membership cards and identification. For students using their families’ membership cards, we require that you bring a copy of the membership card and cardholder photo ID with your payment.

If you would like your group to attend an educational program during the field trip, the program must be scheduled with the Education Department at (574) 235-7621 or zooeducation@potawatomizoo.org. Educational programs are appropriate for audience of all ages. More information is available at the bottom of this page.

Field Trip Scholarships

Through funding provided by Community Foundation of Elkhart County and Kerry’s Kids, Potawatomi Zoological Society offered scholarship opportunities for underserved and low-income schools and programs in Elkhart County and the greater South Bend area to visit the zoo during the 2018 season. Funding will be used for the 2018 zoo season only, and all field trips must be scheduled between April 3rd and October 31st, 2018.

The 2018 scholarship application period is now closed

Educational organizations interested in taking advantage of the program will complete and submit a two-page application. Applications will be reviewed as received and accepted until all available funds are allocated. The program will close upon funding depletion.
