San Diego Zoo Father’s Day Camp Out

World famous San Diego Zoo hosts a Father’s Day event for dads and little ones to experience the outdoors in the heart of the city. Saturday to Saturday, June 9-10, 2012 or Friday to Saturday, June 15-16, 2012, kids ages four and above can take dad on an exciting camping trip without the usual challenges of trekking into the woods with provisions and gear.

The zoo provides tents, camp buffet dinners, activities and games that include some father-child competition and the opportunity to enjoy the zoo’s “animal ambassadors” with an up-close and personal visit.

Participants, get to check out bugs on the big screen (no repellant required), hosted by Dr. Zoolittle. Then, kids get the chance to make dad a special Father’s Day gift. In the evening, an after-sunset hike reveals the nocturnal habits of the zoo’s inhabitants and participants get a chance to make the requisite s’mores and enjoy entertainment around a campfire.

After a night’s rest snuggled in the provided tent, dads and kids can enjoy a hot breakfast and exclusive tour of a special animal exhibit. The cost of the event is $139 for adults and $119 per child and requires reservations. For more information, contact the zoo or visit its website:

More than just a city zoo, the San Diego Zoo is nestled in the 1,200 acres of Balboa Park, and is part of the center of San Diego’s culture. Having achieved distinction by the Project for Public Spaces as one of the world’s great parks, Balboa Park, overlooking downtown San Diego and with views of the Pacific Ocean, is home to many of the city’s art galleries, extensive botanical gardens, a variety of museums, well-known performance venues like the Tony Award-winning Old Globe Theatre, and outdoor play places.

The park is an oasis in veritable desert landscape of natural scrub, cactus and sagebrush thanks to its cultivation in 1889. Along with botanical treasures, the park boasts interesting architecture and several of its historic buildings have featured prominently in movies and television shows.

San Diego’s Balboa Park and Zoo benefits from its ideal Pacific climate and is open to year-round visits. The summer months, however, offer extended operating hours, additional events at the zoo and more concerts at the Spreckels Organ Pavilion, rounded out by the acclaimed Shakespeare Festival at the Old Globe Theatre’s open-air stage.
