Creature Camp-Out

Have you ever wondered what happens at the Zoo when the last guest leaves?

Your adventure begins with a special guided tour of the Zoo’s hundreds of animals leading you to base camp where your tent will be waiting for you. Enjoy a fun-filled night of interactive family adventures complete with a sweet treat and beastly bedtime stories at the end of the evening.

In the morning wake up to the roar of the lion and the hoot of the chimps, enjoy a continental breakfast, a guided walk, and a special animal encounter. Take all of these memories home with a souvenir Creature Camp-Out t-shirt.

This fun-filled family adventure is sure to be a hit.
