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!

Price: $80 per person
Member and organized group price: $70 per person

Price includes all food, parking, and admission to the zoo the following day. 

Group Reservations: The Leader or main contact person should be the first person to register. Please only register yourself or immediate family. You will be prompted to create a group name and password during registration. Once these have been created, please share your group name and password with the rest of the members of your party. When they log in to register, they can register under that group information. This allows us to associate separate registrations and keep you and your party together. Registration is first come, first served so it is important to let your group members know that they should register sooner rather than later to ensure their spot in the Sleepover.
