Zoo Snooze (Overnight camp)
Sleep overnight at Melbourne Zoo!
Zoo Snooze provides school and community groups with a unique overnight educational experience at Melbourne Zoo.
Students will be engaged in a “survival camp”, where they will get to know the animals of the Zoo as they have never known them before. They will learn their stories, their secrets and the adaptations that allow them to survive.
Throughout their adventures, students will develop their own survival instincts as they work together in “tribes” to out-smart, out-eat and out-play the challenges that Melbourne Zoo presents after dark.
Arrive at 6:00pm and enjoy dinner before heading out in to the Zoo for your night-time ZooVivor adventure. After a good night's sleep under the stars it's up early for breakfast and a special animal encounter, before the experience concludes at 9:00am.
You’re then welcome to stay on and enjoy Melbourne Zoo during the daylight hours.
