Family Overnights

Share:

Overnights are designed for families with adults and children ages 6-12.

Fun at the Zoo doesn’t have to end when the sun goes down. Overnights are an exciting way to experience the animal kingdom. All overnights include animal encounters, behind-the-scenes tours, and a late-night snack. Select overnights also include a continental breakfast.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Please note: We understand that siblings outside of this age group may want to attend, but we ask that only children of the appropriate age group join us. Our classes and programs are designed specifically for the age group listed. Overnights are also designed for families rather than groups or parties.
