We are so excited for you to come spend the night at the Zoo! This is a list of things to bring (and NOT to bring) to help you in packing your things for the Wild Night.  It is a good idea to wear clothes to the Zoo that you can also sleep in that night (sweat pants, etc. are great.)

  • Appropriate outer wear (for night and morning hikes)
  • Camera (if you'd like)
  • Tarp for outside sleeping to keep sleeping bags dry
  • Pillow
  • Flashlight for adults
