Kids' Wild Night Out

At a Glance

Come back each month for a different Wild Night Out! Sorry, no grown-ups allowed!

  • Children in kindergarten through Grade 5
  • Select Saturdays, 6 to 10 p.m.
  • Kids! It’s the evening you’ve been waiting for! Join us at the Zoo for a wild night out with Dr. Zoolittle and some animal friends. Send your parents off to do their own thing while you hang out at the Zoo, meet some amazing animals, create cool Zoo-themed crafts, enjoy a snack, and much more!

    A snack, take-home crafts, and a small souvenir gift are included. Children should eat dinner before they arrive, bring a reusable water bottle, wear comfortable walking shoes, and bring a jacket for our outdoor activities. Please keep flashlights and special toys, which may get lost or damaged, at home.

    Cost is $37 per person. This program is for children in kindergarten through Grade 5. For reservations, call 619-718-3000, or book online.  Drop off and pick up at the Dickinson Family Center for Lifelong Learning (formerly the Otto Center). 

    Schedule:
