PETCO (Natick) Offers Field Trips for Scouts


The Fur, Feathers & Fins™ program at PETCO allows Girl Scouts to learn about the characteristics and habitats of fish, reptiles, birds, and small animals.
At your local PETCO, lessons in science, math and geography come to life through this hands-on field trip. As students develop a respect for animals, they will also develop a greater sense of responsibility.
The FREE Fur, Feathers & Fins field trip will help Scouts in grades Pre-K – 8 develop and enhance skills in:
Basic needs for animal care
Animal habitats and characteristics
Environmental issues and animal survival
Animal respect
Reading and science

The program fits in to the requirements for completing both Try-Its & Badges.
Trained tour leaders modify the field trips to be grade appropriate.
The field trips are 60 (Daisy or Brownie level) or 90 minutes (Junior or Cadette level) in length and are limited to group sizes of 10-30 participants per tour – although this number varies by store location.
To book a field trip visit
Do not contact the local store directly first.
