SLEEPOVER PARTY WITH PENGUINS!

Have you ever wondered what goes on at The Maryland Zoo at night? Find out! We are going where the wild things snore and spending the night in the new African Penguin Exhibit!

The Maryland Zoo is thrilled to have completed its new state-of-the-art exhibit. This exciting penguin habitat, called Penguin Coast, provides an enhanced natural environment designed to reflect the South African home of these unique coastal birds. Among other enhancements, this new exhibit space will allow us to get closer than ever to this amazing and endangered species. 

The evening start on Saturday, November 22nd at 6:00 PM. We’ll tour the Zoo from a whole new perspective, visit natural habitats and look for nocturnal creatures, explore animal senses through participatory games, listen to camp light stories and songs, hang out with old friends and make some new ones! On Sunday morning, we’ll have a light breakfast and depart by 9:30 AM. The price includes admission to the Zoo on Sunday, so you are welcome to stay and continue your adventure!

Price includes dinner, snacks, a light breakfast, games, activities and admission to the Zoo on Sunday, November 23rd. 

What do you need to bring? Suggested items to bring include your sleeping bag, pillow, flashlight, warm clothing, folding chair, cup or water bottle, personal care items, camera, and your sense of adventure! 

Parents and guardians are welcome to join their kids. However, this event will be chaperoned and well-supervised by Tripster staff members.

We recently met up with the folks at Tripster, and we’re excited to introduce Baltimore Fishbowl readers to this fun, creative and engaging option for drop-off child care.  Tripster can be the lifesaver you need when a holiday, professional day or vacation day shows up on the school calendar and you have to work! Even on those days when you’re home and don’t have the time to engage your children, you don’t have to park them in front of a video game console or TV. Tripster will give them a day filled with fun, interesting activities.  With many schools closing  NEXT WEEK for the Jewish holiday, now’s the time to learn more!  Check out the launch event Tripster has planned, and read more about the company and its amazing proprietor, who is a working mom herself and understands the need for occasional child care.   Here’s a note from owner, Jamie Seward:

In recent years, there has been lots of press about the skyrocketing costs of college tuition. But parents in Maryland can expect to pay their heftiest education bills far earlier in their children’s lives; according to a report by Child Care Aware America, the annual cost of daycare in Maryland is nearly $5,000 more than the average tuition and fees of public college.
