Night Safari at the Louisville Zoo

April 28-29, 2017

Girls in Action in grades 3-6 and their leaders* (2 leaders for every 1-8 girls) are invited to an overnight missions adventure at the Louisville Zoo. We’ll discover interesting animals as well as mission work where those animals live. In addition to “real live animals” we’ll meet a “real live missionary”!

The cost per person is $50.  Due to limited space, no more than 2 leaders for each group of 1-8 girls.

We will meet in the parking lot of the Louisville Zoo at 5:45 pm on April 28. Parking is $5 per car. The address for the Louisville Zoo is 1100 Trevillian Way, Louisville, Kentucky.

Girls and leaders will sleep on the floor of the Glacier Room.

Registration is due by April 7.  Due to Zoo requirements, we must have your registration by this date.

  • Supper on Friday, breakfast and lunch on Saturday (Please notify the Kentucky WMU office of any food allergies before April 7.)
