Sleepover Safari

Hudson Resting in Snow

A zoo is a zoo 24/7, and now you can get a glimpse into what happens at Brookfield Zoo at night. Join us for a fun-filled nocturnal adenture, with spaces available for families and groups which may include a mix of boy scouts, girl scouts, youth groups, and more! Every Sleepover Safari includes a variety of activities and learning opportunities. You will also take a night hike through the zoo – there’s no telling what you may see after everyone else has gone home for the night!

Come back inside for an ice cream social before settling in for the night. The next morning, wake up to a hot breakfast buffet, a morning hike, and a visit to a zoo exhibit before the zoo opens. Your Sleepover ends at 10:00 Saturday morning. Though we will be parting ways, you and your party are welcome to stay in the zoo all day!
