Overnight Programs at the Zoo!
If you're looking for a really unique experience for your scout or youth group, why not reserve an overnight program at the Zoo? Your Zoo host will lead you in games and activities, and give you a personal nighttime tour of the Zoo, as well as a walkabout to see the animals just after sunrise. Your program can meet merit badge requirements or just be an opportunity to have an adventure!
Group members must be at least 8 years of age; there will be one adult present for every 10 kids in your group. The minimum group size is 15; maximum number is 30. An evening snack and light breakfast will be provided. Programs can be scheduled on Friday & Saturday.
