Chimp or Treat at Project Chimps
Join us for a special Halloween sanctuary tour designed just for kids!
Perfect event for kids and kids at heart
Children are invited to “Chimp or Treat” in costume to see the sanctuary and enrich the lives of the chimps!
Each child will receive:
A 30-45 minute, guided, walking tour with other children and adults;
Special treats at seven stops including vegan and palm-oil free candies as well as non-food treats items such as temporary tattoos, erasers, and other goodies;
A special “treat” bag for their goodies;
The chance to see a chimpanzee from one of our viewing windows.
If you would like your child to participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project and receive only non-food goodies, please indicate this at checkout. A special teal ribbon will be secured to your child’s treat pail to ensure only non-food treats are deposited in their bucket at the stations.
Each child’s ticket comes with a free adult ticket. Additional adults may purchase a ticket too.
Children 2 and under are free!
We are offering opportunities for this event to families who could not otherwise afford the ticket price, if you would like to contribute and underwrite the cost of a ticket for another child, please add this as a donation during check out. Donated tickets will be provided to various Fannin County coordinators who work with families and children in need.

Guided Walking Tour
Guided Walking Tour Details – Tour groups are limited to 15 participants to ensure that both chimpanzees and humans can enjoy the tour. Guests are encouraged to arrive at least 15 minutes before your booked time; groups will be staggered to depart the tour check in within 30 minutes of your booked time.
Will We See Chimps on the Tour? – Chimpanzee sightings are very likely but are not guaranteed as the chimps have the option to be visible or to hide in the forested outdoor habitat.
How Hard is the Walk around the Sanctuary? Please Read! – Expect a 30-45 minute, moderate hike on gravel roads with some steep inclines. The hike can be challenging for young children, less active adults and those with limited mobility. If you have guests in your group who may not be able to complete a moderate hike, PLEASE request mobility assistance when purchasing tickets. We regret that we may not be able to accommodate day-of-event requests for mobility assistance.
