Cub Scouts: Tigers, Wolves and Bears: Animal Avengers
Keep your pack/den active in the summer and come to the Zoo and enjoy an overnight adventure! During this overnight you will complete a scavenger hunt which will lead you to clues about animals in peril. You will learn about ways to help these animals and how to become a Superhero for Wildlife to help defend the animals of the world! This is an exciting chance to see the Zoo animals active at night, sleep outside under the stars (weather permitting), and meet Scouts from around the area.
Who can attend: Scouts (entering grades 1-3) and their adult chaperones
Fee: $35 per person
Limit: 60 participants

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 $35 per person and we require a minimum of 30 participants (this total includes scouts and adults) and a maximum of 60 participants.

Cub Scout (Tiger, Wolf and Bear) - Wildlife Academics Pin
During this evening program, scouts will work on their Wildlife Academic Pin and enjoy seeing the Zoo grounds at night. Scouts will learn about animals that live in their own back yard as well as animals that from around the world. During this program scouts will:
- See and touch live animals while learning about camouflage
- Learn how to bring wildlife into your backyard by creating a birdfeeder
- Learn how to identify some common animal tracks and make a plaster cast of your favorite track to take home
- Learn about reptiles and amphibians by completing a flashlight scavenger hunt.
In order to complete your pin you will need to observe your birdfeeder at home for one week. When all activities are complete you may show your booklet to your cub master to receive your patch or pin.
