Urban Camping in Los Angeles

Eager to camp, but not so eager to actually leave the city? Both the Los Angeles Zoo and Dodger Stadium have put together overnight camp-outs next month that sound kinda cool (although both are a bit pricy -- so my cheap ass will probably settle with camping in our backyard, in case we ever get the bug).

The L.A. zoo event, "Creature Camp-Out," takes place Aug. 8-9, and again on Aug. 22-23. Cost is $65 per person for zoo members; $85 per person for non-zoo members. Details from the zoo's website:

Your adventure begins with a special guided tour of the Zoo’s hundreds of animals leading you to base camp where your tent will be waiting for you. Enjoy a fun-filled night of interactive family adventures complete with a sweet treat and beastly bedtime stories at the end of the evening. In the morning wake up to the roar of the lion and the hoot of the chimps, enjoy a continental breakfast, a guided walk, and a special animal encounter.

Take all of these memories home with a souvenir Creature Camp Out t-shirt. This event is designed for children ages seven and up.

Creature Camp Out begins at 6:30PM and ends at 10AM the next day. Registration for this program begins one month prior to the program date. Please note that dinner is not included as a part of this program.

The Dodger event, Blue Heaven Sleepover, takes place Aug. 14-15, while the Dodgers are away. It's $200 per adult and $100 per kid. Details:

Bring your sleeping bag (tents are not allowed) to Dodger Stadium to watch the Dodgers play the D-backs at Chase Field on DodgerVision, eat dinner, play catch on the field, watch a movie on the DodgerVision screen, sleepover and have breakfast.

Price includes a Dodger goodie bag, dinner and buffet breakfast. Bring a sleeping mat in addition to sleeping bag, as the ground may be damp overnight.
