Family Bunk with the Beasts - Things That Go Bump

Families with children ages 6 and up

Bunk with the Beasts is an overnight learning adventure at the Denver Zoo, designed to provide bonding time, shared projects and special zoo experiences to create family memories that will last a lifetime. In this Bunk, put on your adventurer’s hat and gear up for a journey deep into the heart of the jungle!  Explore a tropical rainforest while you look for animals that scurry along the forest floor, rumble through the understory or climb to the canopy.  Discover how these lush environments factor into our daily lives, and what you can do to help protect them and the amazing animals that live there.

Additional Information


The Denver Zoo encompasses 80 acres, and is home to more than 4000 animals, representing over 750 different species. You will not see everything or learn all there is to learn in just one visit, but you will delve deeper into the topic at hand. And, registered participants are free to explore the zoo on your own after the Bunk ends, if you would like to see some of the exhibits and animals not related to your chosen topic.

Bunk with the Beasts overnight adventures offer a more intimate, personalized exploration of the zoo. Each Bunk with the Beast overnight adventure includes different activities specific to the theme, but you can count on an active, fun-filled experience that includes:

  • A guided zoo tour focusing on animals relating to the Bunk theme
  • Animal encounters (you will not touch a tiger, but you will get up close and personal with some of our “lower profile” residents that play an equally important role in their habitats!)
  • A variety of educational games and activities, including use of night vision scopes.
  • An opportunity to see the zoo at night, without the large crowds!
