Bedtime with the Beasts

One of the wildest ways to experience the zoo, Bedtime with the Beasts is the chance to have an overnight adventure. Enjoy guided tours through the zoo and interactive activities to learn about our animals’ nocturnal habits. Meet an animal ambassador and have a light snack before curling up for the night.  After breakfast, participate in a hands-on activity before having a private keeper chat.  Once the zoo opens for the day, your group is welcome to stay and visit the zoo on your own.  Admission to the zoo is included.

For ages 6 and up, Bedtime with the Beasts is ideal for organized groups such as schools, scout troops or youth groups.

Programs are offered by reservation March through November from 6:00 p.m. until 9:30 a.m. the following morning. Campers will “rough it” by sleeping on a carpeted floor in a climate-controlled building with bathrooms nearby. Participants need to bring their own sleeping bags and overnight gear.
