• The Fall 2019 Snooze dates will be posted by August 30. Thank you for your patience.

  • If you have a scout troop/pack/den that has multiple age levels or if 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 $42 per person and we require a minimum of 30 participants (this total includes scouts and adults) and a maximum of 60 participants.

    Please contact the overnight staff at (314) 646-4614 or overnights@stlzoo.org for more information.

  • For families and organized groups with participants ages 5 and up

    Join us for this amazing opportunity to sleep inside the Sea Lion Sound tunnel! We will explore some of our marine and freshwater life at the Zoo by visiting Chain of Lakes and the Herpetarium. We will end the night by laying out sleeping bags inside the tunnel. You will awake under the sea and, hopefully, under a sea lion!

    Available April - September.

    Fee: $62 per person (minimum of 12 people)

    Limited to 16 to 18 people in the sea lion tunnel. Maximum of 24 people (some will sleep in the cave area or by the sea lion windows).
