All Zoo Snooze programs include an educational presentation, live animal encounters, a Moonlight Safari through a portion of the zoo, and other activities like games and crafts. A bedtime snack and a light continental breakfast the next morning are also included. Your group can choose to sleep indoors – for an all-weather experience, or you can choose to bring your own camping equipment and pitch a tent in a designated area within the zoo.  Zoo Snooze programs are recommended for groups of up to 30 people. They can be scheduled throughout the year, according to educator availability. A variety of topics is available and programs can be tailored to meet the needs of your group.
