Bunk with Beasts

A fun-filled sleepover experience for groups to enjoy. View our pre-scheduled overnights.

Overnight programs are currently suspended.

We will continue to monitor conditions and plan to resume overnight programs when it is safe to invite you back for this unique experience. If you are interested in the Bunk with Beasts program, please provide your contact information to receive an update when overnights resume.

Overview of Activities

Participants need to arrive at the Zoo by 5:15 p.m. We’ll unload our gear and fuel up with some dinner. The evening is filled with activities, an animal presentation, and a guided tour of the Zoo. We close the evening with a nighttime snack. In the morning, we tour the Zoo, and you’ll get to see what happens every day before the Zoo opens! We conclude at 9 a.m. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate late arrivals or early dismissals, so participants need to be available for the program duration from 5:15 p.m. to 9 a.m

What We Provide

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.

What to Bring

Guests should bring 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.
