Overnights

Join us for nighttime magic at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium!
Your overnight experience is designed for scout groups in grades 1-6  and will be a wonderful combination of fun, adventure and learning.

Choose from our three overnight experiences. When you click the titles, it will take you to the specific webpage for the overnight with more information and availability. The dates listed are dates available through August, 2014.  You must have a minimum of 24 people (children and/or adults) to book your own date.  Otherwise, your group will be combined with another similar group.  Price is $36 per person, children or adults.  There is no member discount for scout overnights. 

  

Krazy Kritters
A turtle’s shell, a sea lion’s whiskers, and your thumb have something in common: they are all types of adaptations. Join us for an exciting evening to discover more unique types of adaptations and how animals use them to survive.

ZSI: Zoo Scene Investigation
Participants will examine the scene of the crime as they work together to solve a Zoo mystery. We will break out the magnifying glasses, follow footprints, and interview a couple of key suspects in this zany and fun search for the truth.

Ocean Exploration
Study ocean habitats and the animals that call them home. We will examine the threats facing today's ocean habitats and come up with solutions to these problems. Participants will meet an aquarist that will provide them with a behind-the-scenes look at some of the PPG Aquarium's most famous residents.
