Nightcrawler: Scouts

As the sun sets on Zoo Atlanta, the fun is just beginning! Spend the night connecting to wildlife, participating in engaging activities, working toward badges, and learning how you can help save species. Spend the night in climate-controlled, indoor facilities and wake up to the sounds of the wild! Stay and enjoy the Zoo the following day after breakfast and morning activities. Our Scout NightCrawler events are specially tailored by level so that Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts can work toward petals, badges, belt loops and pins that are relevant to them. Participants can register as individual Scouts or as a troop.
