Zoo Family Camp Outs

August 7 - August 21
Great Plains Zoo, Sioux Falls

www.greatzoo.org

Enjoy the great outdoors overnight at the Great Plains Zoo with our new Zoo Family Camp Outs!

We’ll pitch our tents near the Rare Rhinos exhibit and enjoy animal encounters, a fire pit and evening snack, and an after dark tour of the Zoo!  In the morning, we’ll have a light breakfast, meet more ambassador animals, and take another tour before the Zoo opens.

 Zoo Family Camp Outs are appropriate for families with kids ages 6 and up. One adult can accompany up to five children; everyone ages 17 and under must have a responsible adult with them at the event. Each participant must be registered to attend, including adults.

Advanced registration is required.  Registration closes 4 days before the program begins.

Friday, Aug. 7 – Saturday, Aug. 8
Thursday, Aug. 20 – Friday, Aug. 21

Family Camp Outs begin at 8 p.m. and end at 10 a.m. the next morning.

Families will need to provide their own tent and bedding, and are encouraged to bring folding camp or lawn chairs.  A full list of what to bring will be sent to all participants in advance of the program.
