Family Wilderness Experience Night Camp

Join us for one WILD night where your party will have a scrumptious dinner off the grill, make s’mores over a camp fire, go on a night hike, and have up-close animal encounters. In the morning, enjoy a continental breakfast, a guided hike, and explore the Zoo on your own for the rest of the day!

You can also have a private Night Camp with a minimum of 25 people. Create your own camp for a school or church group, scout troop, family gathering, birthday party, or your own custom adventure. Camps can be reserved Tuesday-Saturday from late September-May. Reservations require at least three weeks advanced notice.

Night Camp is recommended for campers ages seven and up. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Anyone under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult. Please purchase a separate ticket for each adult attending. 

Zoo Explorers

There’s a mystery at the Zoo, and we need YOU to help us solve it! Come help the Night Camp team crack the case at our Explorers Wilderness Experience Camp, an immersive, pop-up tent camping experience (don’t worry, we provide the tents and do all the set-up). We’ll explore the Zoo, collect clues and learn just what it takes to navigate the Zoo after dark. This overnight adventure includes a barbeque-style dinner, s’mores, a continental breakfast, a souvenir water bottle and admission to the zoo the next day!

Capacity

  • Sleeping accommodations for this Night Camp are 3-5 person pop-up tents set up by Night Camp staff. Families will not be asked to share a tent with other group(s).
