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.
Please contact Keri Lammering, Overnight Programs Coordinator at (314) 646-4614 or email@example.com for more information.
