Zoo Overnight

The Pack 60 Cameron Park Zoo Overnight will be on March 22, 2019.  We will be doing the Roars & Snores program which allows us to step into the wild side of Africa.  We will go behind the scenes and into the night houses to see where the lions, giraffes, and white rhinos sleep at night.  After that, we will spend the night in the saltwater aquarium.  If over 50 people register for the event, we will be split between the saltwater and freshwater aquariums.  All Scouts will receive a Roars & Snores patch.

Siblings are welcome to attend this event, but they must be 6 years old or in Kindergarten.  The zoo does not usually allow groups with children under 6 years old, but is making an exception so that we can bring our Lions.

Everyone attending the Snooze needs to fill out a Cameron Park Zoo IIndividual Registration form and bring it with them the evening of the event. Cameron Park Zoo registration forms will be emailed to everyone who has registered through the Pack registration form.

We will be walking in places that are off the beaten path. Everyone must wear shoes that cover their toes!


$45 per person.  An online payment option will be added to this page in early spring 2019.


The event will start at 6:00 p.m. The entrance gate will be locked at 7:00 p.m. No one will be admitted after gates are secured. If you are running late due to traffic, etc., please call your Den Leader so they can let the zoo staff know.


The front gate located at 1701 N. 4th Street will be open. There will be a staff member to greet you at the flagpoles and help move your items to your sleeping area. Children are asked to carry one item other than a pillow. There is no need to bring toys, chairs, grills, etc. We will be busy with the evening activities. Please leave any extra food at home.
