A Slumber Party at the Zoo - Priceless
Thursday, April 26, 2012
Are you ready for a wild adventure? Imagine being a part of a special camping trip in the city that includes bedtime lullabies from the sea lions. An early morning wake-up call, courtesy of the wandering peacocks. And that's just a few of the things you'll experience.
If you're a MasterCard® cardholder, through their "Priceless" program, you have the opportunity to explore the Bronx Zoo after hours for a special customized overnight - complete with animal experiences. Families with children ages 5 and up (adult required) will enjoy hands-on, educational and fun activities, meet some of our animals up-close, and create memories their family will treasure for a lifetime. Participants bring their own tent and sleeping bags.
