Chimps Rock! Rock Painting & Sanctuary Tours

Chimps Rock! has been postponed to June 13 & 14, 2020. Please plan to join us for a guided tour of the Project Chimps sanctuary in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Inspired by The Kindness Rocks Project, children are also invited to paint a rock with messages of inspiration to enrich the lives of the former research chimpanzees who now live at the sanctuary. Adults without children are welcome to attend too!

If you purchased tickets for the event, originally scheduled for April 16 & 17, please email our events team to arrange transferring your tickets to June 13 or 14. We will also process refunds for anyone who cannot attend and would like one.

If you'd like to learn more about how we're preparing for the COVID-19 Coronavirus to protect the health of the chimps and our guests, please read more on our Chimp Chatter Blog.



Kids and kids at heart will enjoy this special day of art and discovery at the Project Chimps sanctuary for former research chimpanzees, located in the mountains of north Georgia!

Each guest will receive a rock to paint and while it dries, will take a guided walking tour of the sanctuary and learn about the lives of the chimps!

After the 30-45 minute, small-group tour, you can add a message of conservation, inspiration, or motivation to your rock, then take the rock home or exchange it for another in the new Project Chimps Kindness Rocks Garden.

Tickets are $10 per child and one adult chaperone. Additional adult tickets are available for $25.

Project Chimps is a 236-acre sanctuary for chimpanzees retired from medical research. Today, 59 chimpanzees call the sanctuary home. Project Chimps is privately funded and proceeds from event ticket sales and donations help provide food, care and enrichment for the chimpanzees.

The event will be held rain or shine and Project Chimps cannot guarantee everyone will see a chimpanzee, but the chances are very good!
