Join us for a fun family overnight as we enjoy the “yuck” side of animal antics while having a messy good time. During your adventure, you will meet an owl and dig through a pukey pellet that it purged. Discover some of the icky habits that make big cats far from purrrrr-fectly mannered. Learn all about the gross things that make our animal friends so fascinating. Enjoy exploring zoo trails, meeting zoo animals, playing special games, roasting marshmallows over a fire, and much more!

Dates: 6: 30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 17 through 10 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 18.    

Cost:  $45.00 per Non-Member,  $35.00 per Zoo Member

This overnight is open to multiple families with children 6 – 17 years old, allowing them to come together to enjoy our overnight experiences.   All children must be supervised by a guardian or parent, and the zoo requires one adult for every 4 children.

The cost includes evening snacks, a continental breakfast, and admission to the zoo after the program ends on Saturday.  Once registered, you will receive an electronic confirmation with details on items you and your family should bring along for this overnight adventure.

Participants sleep in our climate-controlled education auditorium.   Please note the zoo has no shower facilities, and that is not included.
