Zoo Snooze

Bring your scout troop, youth group, class, or private party to Binder Park Zoo for an adventure you’ll never forget!

We have four unique topics to choose from, or we can create a custom program just for you. You will get to sleep under the stars next to the snow leopard exhibit, or you can choose to sleep in our climate controlled facilities.


Every overnight includes live animal presentations, fun games and activities, and a night hike! Dinner, a snack, continental breakfast, and admission to the zoo the following day are also included in the price.


All overnights are for participants ages 6 and up.


Zoo Snooze Topics

Life on the Wild Side

It’s time to learn what it’s like to live at the zoo! We will get to go behind the scenes to see some of our animals’ indoor homes, make enrichment for them to interact with, and play games so we can understand a little bit of their world.

Creatures of the Night

As the sun sets, many creatures of the night come out to eat, play, and explore! Let’s learn all about the adaptations that let them roam about their dark world.

Predator vs Prey

Come explore what it’s like to be both the predator and the prey. We’ll learn how all animals try to survive with the help of some of our animals at the zoo!

We are Family

Binder Park Zoo is full of animal families from our lynx sisters to our rat brothers. Grab your group, and get ready to learn all about how animal families live together in the wild!
