Enjoy a sleepover with our newest feathered friends! Enjoy an evening of hands-on activities in our new Helzberg Penguin Plaza. You may even get to explore the Zoo after hours and see what the animals do at night (weather permitting).

Zoo admission is not included but can be added on for an additional fee if you are planning an extended day. Please contact Education at Education@fotzkc.org or 816-513-5723 for more information.
Sleepovers are held in the Helzberg Penguin Plaza building and Zoo Learning Center on weekends, and run from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. One adult chaperone per 10 children under 18 is required. A continental breakfast will be served in the morning.
Please note: A minimum of 20 participants is required for campouts. If the date you select does not fill, we will do our best to reschedule you. If you have a minimum of 20 participants and would like to register for your own private overnight, please call the number above.
In the event a participant cancels at least two weeks prior to the program and cannot reschedule for another program, a full refund will be given.
Sorry, if a participant cancels less than two weeks prior to the program, we will not be able to offer a refund. However, you will be allowed to reschedule and will be charged an additional $5.00 processing fee.
Overnight programs may be cancelled due to severe weather, in which case the Zoo will notify participants of the cancellation four hours prior to the program. If this happens, a full refund will be issued. We will do our best to reschedule in the event of a cancelled program, but rescheduling is not guaranteed.
