Slumber Safaris

Do something more with your troop, pack, or den. Come see the zoo as you have never seen it before. The night will include an animal presentation, games and activities, a look behind the scenes with a keeper and a camp fire! Wake up the next morning to a continental breakfast and a guided walk around as the keepers "wake up" the zoo.

Check out the Slumber Safari Page for details.
