The Tigers and Wolves from Pack 409 will be sleeping like bears at the Cameron Park Zoo in Waco on April 27-28! The cost per person is $45 (child or adult). No camping gear needed except for bedroll, clothing and toiletries are needed, as we will be sleeping in the aquariums at the zoo. A max of 70 attendees can come along, so please let me know ASAP if you are going. I will also need a check to reserve your spot.

We will meet at Cameron Park Zoo entrance at 5:30 on Friday, April 27 (I would plan on leaving Pflugerville no later than 4pm). They will provide us a pizza dinner, a behind the scenes night tour of the animals, and breakfast in the morning, among other activities. We are then able to enjoy free admission to the zoo like a normal visitor at 8:30am on Saturday.

The front gate (where we will meet) is located on 4th Street. A zoo staff member will meet us there and help us move gear to the aquariums. There is no need to bring toys, chairs, grills, etc.... We will be very busy with evening activities. Please leave any extra food at home.

We will be touring places that are off the beaten path, EVERYONE MUST WEAR CLOSE TOED SHOES.

Registrations will close April 13.
