Some Chicago families aren't spending the night in the wild, but with the wild camping out at the Lincoln Park Zoo.

After pitching tents and having dinner they got to visit the animals and learn the basics about spending time in the wilderness.

Like any good camp out, there was a fire and tasty s'mores. They'll wake up Saturday to the calls of the gibbons and flamingos.
