Snooze at the Zoo
Girl Scout Cadettes (Studio 2B): Zooper Zoos
Have you ever wondered how Zookeepers take care of the animals? Do you think the Zoo helps animals in the wild? Would you like to help the animals of the Saint Louis Zoo and animals like them in the wild, but don’t know what to do? Come to Snooze at the Zoo and discover the answers to these questions plus sleep at the Zoo! Scouts and adult leaders will simulate keeper duties in a keeper care relay, participants will try diagnosing animals when they become a Snooze veterinarian, put on some Safari gear and try your hand at simulated field research!
Overnight evening activities will include a live animal encounter, rotations through exciting activities, an evening pizza snack (with a soft drink), and a night hike around Zoo grounds, which includes a flashlight tour of the Herpetarium. The morning portion of the overnight adventure includes a continental breakfast, a morning stroll around Zoo grounds to see the animals wake-up, a souvenir Zoo patch and glow-in-the-dark overnight cup!
Who can attend: Girl Scout Cadettes (Studio 2B) 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 Keri Lammering, Overnight Programs Coordinator at (314) 646-4614 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Girl Scout Cadette After School Badge Program
Do you want an exciting after school activity for your Girl Scout Cadette troop? Come to the Zoo for an after school Cadette badge program. Each program includes a live animal presentation as well as other fun activities that are designed to help you meet the criteria for your badge. *Note: This program does not complete the badge.
Animal Helpers Badge
Zoos are a great place to see animals in a natural environment, but did you know Zoo animals can also help people? In this afterschool program, we will explore the connection between animals and humans. We will look at how that connection has developed and changed in a Zoo setting and what the future may hold for animals and humans. (This class will complete #1 Explore the connection between humans and animals, #3 Know how animals help people emotionally, and #5 Look at how animals might help us in the future.)
