Sparks Sleepover at Reptilia!

We love our weekly Sparks meetings but we wanted to give them some sort of overnight experience as an end of the year event. Since we took them to the Ontario Science Centre last year we decided to try a sleepover at Reptilia. 

Reptilia is a fairly local education centre/indoor zoo that focuses on reptiles. They have alligators, snakes, turtles, lizards, all sorts of fun creatures. These people were AMAZING to work with. We ended up having the place to ourselves for the night and their staff was wonderful 

When we got there the girls got settled in and did a craft (alligators of course). After that they got a private show with 6 live animals. The animal keeper answered all of their questions and the girls got to touch all the animals too. After that we got a guided flashlight tour of the facility to check out all the other cool creatures. 

One the flashlight tour was over we had an evening snack and set up our beds for the night. The coolest part? You got to pick an animal to sleep beside! I chose this guy over here. 

Overall an amazing experience. We are already planning to go back next year with the Brownies!
