Want to spend the night at the zoo? Join us for an outdoor nocturnal adventure; see what the zoo is like while most of our animals are off exhibit in their inside sleeping areas. We will provide an evening full of learning about wildlife and conservation through exciting games and activities, a night hike in the dark, and a live animal presentation. Programs are available for scouts, schools, organized groups, and families with children ages 6 and up. 

We provide 2 options for unique group overnight experiences and 1 family-only option:

Zoo Snooze
