Spend a fun-filled night enjoying the Oakland Zoo in a very special experience - camping out with the wild things! 

Bring your den to the Oakland Zoo for a night full of adventure and fun! These large group overnights are designed to accommodate several Cub Scout dens or one large pack. Explore the Zoo on a private evening tour, enjoy a light snack, participate in activities centered around your theme, and meet one of our education animals up-close. When it's time for bed, you'll head down to the auditorium to sleep. In the morning, enjoy a tasty continental breakfast, pack up, and head back into the zoo to observe the animals as they wake. It's an experience you'll never forget!

It has not been determined yet if we are camping in the meadow or sleeping in the auditorium.
