For the second consecutive year, our parks and Team Members will be connecting with local Boys & Girls Clubs to provide meaningful experiences. Last year, with the help of the Virginia community, we donated 10,000 tickets to the local Clubs. Together, we can do it again this year. 


Become A Member, Donate A Ticket | May 1 - 31

Boys & Girls Club

When you buy a Busch Gardens'  Membership Plan online during the month of May, a ticket will be donated on your behalf to the children of the local Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Virginia, Virginia Peninsula and Metro Richmond*. These tickets will be used throughout the summer for the children's field trips and in-park educational opportunities.

In addition to enjoying the many benefits of a Busch Gardens Membership and access to all seasonal events, you can feel good knowing that your purchase will help provide an unforgettable experience to a child. 



What Your Purchase Helps Support

The Children are our future

The Boys & Girls Club Movement is made up of more than 1,140 independent organizations across the United States. Each organization has many locations which offer affordable after school care and life-changing programming in five core areas:

Boys & Girls Club believe in education, character development, the arts, life skills and fitness.

By purchasing a Busch Gardens Membership, you can help further expose the kids to all five of these core values. In addition to opening the doors to our parks, our Landscaping, Finance, Safety, Zoo and Marketing teams will meet with the Clubs on different occasions throughout the year to help educate the children about different cultures, career opportunities and the importance of conservation.


The Kids Give Back Too

In March, some of the children planted their very own garden at Busch Gardens. In collaboration with our landscaping team, they brightened up the park with vibrant colors as a thank you to the community. Throughout the year, the children are also provided opportunities to take some of the flowers they've grown and distribute them to local nursing homes.
