Kids' Night Out (Parents' Night Off!)

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person Kids' Night Out programs are temporarily on hiatus.  Please check back for updates.  In the meantime, please check out our VIRTUAL program opportunities.  Stay healthy - we'll see you soon!

Take the night off - we'll watch the kids! Children ages 5 years old to 12 years old can spend the evening at the Zoo playing fun games, watching nature-themed movies and meeting live zoo animals! Parents can drop-off and pick-up anytime between the hours of 5:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. A snack will be provided.  Participants who would like a more substantial meal are welcome to pack one.
