You can support the Milwaukee County Zoo by camping this summer 🐅

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) --- As summer approaches, people are eager to set up their tents and go camping. Most years, the Zoological Society of Milwaukee invites guests to "Snooze at the Zoo", but this year officials are inviting  you to "Snooze FOR the Zoo" at home.

Due to ongoing safety restrictions related to COVID-19, the traditional camping fundraiser at the zoo has been canceled. Whether you camp at a campground, in your backyard, or even in your living room, officials want you to still be able to take a piece of the Milwaukee County Zoo with you. Officials say Snooze FOR the Zoo is an opportunity to help the Zoological Society of Milwaukee while enjoying some of the best parts about camping.

Beginning Wednesday, May 12 through June 16, you can purchase a Snooze bag that will include the following:

  • A commemorative T-shirt
  • Post cereal snacks
  • Campfire S’More Pops
  • Racine Danish Kringle
  • Wildlife and conservation activities sponsored by Educators Credit Union
  • Fun Wisconsin animal facts
  • And more!

Zoo Pass members can get a discounted rate of $15 a person or $50 for a family of four. Non-members can purchase a bag for $20 a person or $70 for a family of four. 

Packages can be picked up at the zoo June 23-25.
