Are you looking for a fun, outdoor family event? Look no further than the Racine Zoo’s Slumber Safari! The night begins with entering the Zoo just as it’s closing, setting up your tents while hearing the tiger’s nightly roars or the primates' end-of-day calling. Once you’re all set, it’s time to visit an animal for a behind-the-scenes encounter. Then, join your fellow campers at separate picnic tables to enjoy a pizza dinner, or bring your own food! Each camper will also complete a craft that matches that slumber safari’s theme. After dinner, the fun continues with a visit from some of the ambassador animals. If that wasn’t enough animal time (and it never is!), your family will then be treated to a late night, themed tour of the Zoo. See how the animals behave differently when guests are gone and the sun is setting, before wrapping up the night with s’mores around the campfire near the pavilion overlooking Lake Michigan. After a night under the stars in your tent, wrap up with individually wrapped continental breakfast items, and enjoy complimentary admission to the Zoo the next day. On July 23, learn all about how the amazing animals around the Zoo stay hidden through your guided tour, including an up-close and personal meet-and-greet with Dewey, the giant African spurred tortoise! Create your own crazy camouflage animal craft and meet a variety of amazing ambassador animals! Must sign up by Monday, July 18 at 5pm. $70 per person. Tent rental available.
