Summer Snooze at the Zoo:
From Dusk til Dawn

What goes on when the sun goes down? Or better yet, who comes out? Come to the Zoo and explore the awesome world of nocturnal animals. We will learn about their unique adaptations and even test them against our own abilities. This program will also let us see some of our Zoo’s nocturnal animals after the sun goes down and find out what they do all night long. So join us and find out about the unique animals that are up from dusk til dawn!

For Cub Scouts and their adult chaperones

Do You Have a Mixed Age Group of Scouts?

If you have a scout troop/pack/den that has multiple age levels and our Snooze at the Zoo programs do not match your needs, you can schedule your own private scout overnight. When you schedule your own overnight we use the themes which we are currently offering but tailor them to match your needs. These overnights cost $40 per person and we require a minimum of 30 participants (this total includes scouts and adults) and a maximum of 60 participants.

Please contact Bridget Ebert, Overnight Programs Coordinator at (314) 646-4614 or ebert@stlzoo.org for more information.
