Snooze at the Zoo

Join us for an overnight adventure at Zoo Boise!

Zoo Boise offers a variety of Snooze at the Zoo overnight programs for your Family, Scout Troop, School or Youth Group. Sleep under the stars right in the middle of the city! Enjoy programs led by education department staff or explore the zoo on your own after regular zoo hours.

Scout Troops will bond while earning a badge. In addition to a Scout Master-led program, troops will enjoy learning more about the zoo’s exotic animals from our education department staff. School Groups will learn about zoo animals while fulfilling Idaho/Oregon State Education Requirements.  Through education department-led programs, groups will get to explore the zoo in the dark and interact with some of the zoo’s exotic animals.
