Snooze at the Zoo

Experience a campout unlike any other.  Sleep under the stars, surrounded by exotic animals, right in the middle of the city!  You’ll enjoy wildlife-focused programs led by zoo staff (including a zoo tour in the dark), interacting with some animals, exploring the zoo on your own, games, and more. Activities and program schedule can be tailored to meet specific requirements with ample notice to the zoo instructor.
