Bunk with Beasts is a fun-filled sleepover experience for groups to enjoy. There are two ways to experience Bunk with Beasts:
Expect to arrive at the Zoo by 5:15 p.m. We sit down, eat dinner, and unload the gear. The evening is filled with games, activities, an Animal Presentation, as well as a nocturnal tour of the Zoo. We close the evening with a nighttime snack. In the morning, we rise and shine and tour the zoo, getting to see what happens everyday before the Zoo even opens! We conclude at 9 a.m.
As part of your Bunk with Beasts experience, we provide your group with pizza and drinks for dinner, as well as a late-night snack. Each child will also leave the program with our special “Seneca Park Zoo Bunk with Beasts” Patch. Add on a Continental Breakfast for just $5 per person (not available for pre-scheduled Bunk with Beasts).
If you’re a scout troop, we ask that you share your Bunk with Beasts experience with another troop. We have limited space and availability, which cannot keep up with the demand for our program. You have the choice to either pair up with another troop you may know, or we can pair you with a troop with similar ages and interests. If your group is smaller than 15 children, you will need to share with another group.
Participants should bring with them a sleeping bag, pillow, flashlight, and toiletries. It is also important to dress for the weather, as we will be outside for the tours. Most groups also bring their own breakfast, as we do not provide this; remember to bring any paper supplies you might need. Groups are also welcome to bring any additional snacks you might like.
