Looking for a fun trip for your troop? Try Atlanta!


The Atlanta Zoo has a special overnight just for Girl Scouts - Nightcrawlers

After the sun sets and Zoo Atlanta closes its gates for the evening, the fun is just beginning for NightCrawlers! During this overnight program, you and your students will discover what happens in the zoo after hours. With all Zoo programs aligned with the Georgia Performance Standards, NightCrawlers is perfect for groups from 1 -- 12 grade, and even adults! Each of the nine uniquely themed NightCrawler programs include a fun hands-on classroom component, an animal encounter with education animals, an exclusive tour of our Animal Nutrition Kitchen, and a nighttime scavenger hunt in the World of Reptiles. Guests sleep in climate-controlled facilities and wake in the morning to the sound of lions roaring! You and your girls will then enjoy breakfast, a guided tour of Zoo Atlanta, and a ride on the train or carousel. 

Whether your group is testing the water quality of our wetlands exhibit, tracking golden lion tamarins with the help of telemetry equipment, or learning to differentiate between a giant panda and a red panda by examining skulls, your students are bound to discover a new appreciation for science and environmental education on this nocturnal adventure!

To take your troop to spend the night at a Zoo Atlanta NightCrawler that your girls will never forget, please visit them online or call 404-624-WILD.


PLUS!  There's plenty of other fun activities to enjoy in Atlanta.  There are so many great things to see and do there, and it's an easy drive for most.  Other attractions are the Georgia Aquarium, Coca-Cola Museum, Puppet Theatre, Underground, International Market, CNN Center, Stone Mountain, etc.


If you are planning a trip with your troop please remember that troop leaders must complete Venturing Out.  This training guides you through planning and carrying out trips, meetings and activities outside your normal meeting place.    Please remember to follow the Safety Wise rules for trip planning, check your Leader Notebook for procedures, and make sure you have Permission Forms, Girl Health Forms, emergency contact info, etc., with you and ready for the trip.
