Summer Snooze at the Zoo
Brownie Girl Scouts: Social Nights

Girl Scout Brownies, come spend a night at the Saint Louis Zoo. Spend a night at the Zoo while learning what goes on at the Zoo at night. We will explore the adaptations of nocturnal animals and their complex social behaviors. By the time you snuggle into your sleeping bag, you will not only be able to identify what animal calls you hear, but also what they are “saying”! This program includes crafts, games, guided hikes and a campfire before bed.

Who can attend: Brownie Girl Scouts 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.

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