Join us for our most popular Girls Scouts Night Out Holiday Event—Gift-A-Paloo-ZOO! Come see the Zoo in a different light…with nearly one million twinkling lights! There will be plenty to see and lots to do! Gift-A-Paloo-ZOO is a fun-filled evening of crafts, animal encounters and activities that will earn credits towards your badge requirements and journeys. We will be making gifts for your pets at home, the Zoo’s education animals and those furry friends without a home for Christmas (maybe even one for you too)! The wildest night ever will begin with a SWAPs meet*. Squeeze in a few “cool” activities and end with a Holly Jolly Night Hike, where you will enjoy Lights Before Christmas**! On your self-guided hike, you will see some of Riverbanks’ most loved residents as colorful animated images and have the opportunity to take a photo with Santa, see it snow, roast marshmallows and sip hot cocoa at the Jingle Bell Bonfire!
*Please plan to participate and bring an animal themed SWAPs to exchange with your fellow Girl Scouts. **Admission to Lights Before Christmas is included in the program fee. Children may not be left unattended. Individual scouts must be accompanied by an adult; troops should have at least one adult per 10 scouts in attendance.
