Sleep Under the Sea at the Georgia Aquarium!
After the Aquarium closes its doors for the night, the Girl Scouts come out to play. Girls and their caregivers will have the opportunity to sleep in front of one of the Aquarium's magnificent exhibits such as Ocean Voyager, Tropical Diver Gallery, Cold Water Quest Gallery, and Sharks! Predators of the Deep Gallery.
Through the course of your sleepover adventure, Georgia Aquarium wants to empower guests to make the world a better place and help preserve the waters of the world. To better assist with this experience, your sleepover adventure aligns itself with the following objectives:
- Identify ways to protect the environment from litter and trash.
- Identify several features of the world's oceans and how human life benefits from the oceans.
- Understand biodiversity and why it's important.
- Learn about the interplay and variety of life found in coral reef habitats.
- Learn what steps we can all take to protect aquatic life.

Snacks & Meals:
The Overnight includes an evening snack and breakfast. We suggest participants have dinner before you arrive, as the Aquarium does not serve dinner.
- Evening snack includes: Individual snack-sized bag of chips or popcorn and fruit snacks. Bottled water will be provided as well.
- Breakfast includes: a cheese and egg biscuit, fresh fruit, tater tots and water or juice. For the adults, coffee will also be available. A Gluten-free box of cheerios or Chex cereal can be available if requested before sleepover date. The café itself will not be open to purchase other items until 9:30am.
- Currently, the Aquarium does not have a vegan or dairy-free option available. Specialized meals are not available during the sleepover. If you or someone in your group has an allergy or aversion to the meals provided on your program, you may bring your own food. We recommend you bring a lunch-box sized cooler or disposable containers. Please, keep in mind refrigeration is not available. Outside food is not permitted unless there is a dietary need. Please email if you would like us to order the gluten-free option for you or another guest in your group.

What to Bring:
To make your stay much more comfortable, a sleeping mat is provided for participants. Here is a recommended Packing List for what else you may need:

* sleeping bags

* blankets

* pillows

* sweater or hoodie

* PJ's or extra clothes

* toothbrush and other small toiletries

* battery powered phone charger

Twin sized cots & inflatable beds (as long as they do not require electricity to inflate) are allowed, but please be aware, guests with air mattresses and cots may be asked to sleep further away from exhibit windows to ensure they are not blocking the view of the habitat from others sleeping in the same area.
If you are in need of an electrical outlet because of special needs such as a CPAP machine, please let us know. We'll do our best to make sure you're near an outlet.
Sleeping can be a little hard for some, while away from home. We suggest you bring eye masks and ear plugs if you're sensitive to light or sounds. We do keep emergency and pathway lighting on in our galleries, therefore it will not get dark.

Safety Guidelines:
To ensure the safety of guests and animals, the following protocols are in place for Sleep Under the Sea nights:
- Registrants must be 6 years old and up to participate.
- There are security officers and a Paramedic onsite during all sleepovers.
- For logistical and security reasons, there is an 8:00 PM cutoff time for late arrivals Friday night.
- Smoking is strictly prohibited inside the Aquarium. This includes all forms of electronic and vapor cigarettes.
- Guests are not permitted to exit and re-enter the building once the program has begun.
