We dare you and your troop or pack to join us for an “engrossing” evening adventure here at the Zoo! Girls and boys are invited to this Creepy Creature Feature and Trick-or-Treat Trek that is a not-so-scary night of creepy crawly critters and candy, of course! The Creepy Creature Feature will include activities and animal encounters that highlight the scaly, slimy and mythunderstood friends of the animal kingdom (reptiles and amphibians), earning credit towards badge and merit requirements, depending on troop work! This wild night will begin with a Creepy Meet and Greet, we will throw in a few mysterious activities, crafts and end with a Trick-or-Treat Trek, where you will change into your costume** and enjoy the popular Zoo’s Halloween spook-tacular, Boo at the Zoo! On your self-guided trek through Boo, you will experience Frankenstein’s Foam Zone, an eeky freaky DJ dance party and a trick-or-treat trail with candy and so much more!
*Girl Scouts: Please plan to participate and bring a creepy creature themed S.W.A.P.s to exchange with your fellow Girl Scouts. **Admission to Boo at the Zoo is included in the program fee. You may come in costume; however, in order to participate in animal encounters, we ask that any make up/ props wait to be added until after program.
