Sleepovers at Busch Gardens are packed with so much fun and learning (shhh, don't tell them), who has time to sleep? Imagine your students sleeping alongside tigers or feeding giraffes their breakfast.

Join us for a nighttime adventure that begins at the end of a day—and explore the park in a whole new way! Sleepovers are one-night adventures that begin at 6:00 p.m. and end the next morning at 9:00 a.m. Participants sleep in a variety of venues based on the theme of the sleepover and the size of the group. All sleepovers include dinner, breakfast, a Camp T-shirt and water bottle for each participant. All you need to bring is sleeping gear and good walking shoes!
