Sleepovers Just Got a Lot More Fun

Your child’s sleepover just got much cooler.  A brand new way to experience sleepovers with friends has arrived in Arizona.

AZ Sleepy Teepee has created the ultimate sleepover using you guessed it, teepees.  Whether you want a party of two, three, four, or more, they have themes to meet your needs.

Currently they offer two themes for boys and two for girls, although they are planning on expanding their themes soon according to Dana Macaig from AZ Sleepy Teepee.  Sleepover packages start at $160.  

The idea came about simple enough.  Macaig said she “was researching fun sleepover party ideas for her daughter, Jaydan’s, 10th birthday party. Pinterest showed all of these cute teepee slumber parties. There were actual companies in Australia and the UK that rented out the teepees, but nothing really in the US or AZ…yet.”

The company owns 15 teepees, though there are plans to expand on that. They can book one to three parties a night.  We asked her how long she suggests booking in advance and she suggested at least four weeks.

For now, parties are being booked for kids, however there is a plan in the future to book for adult themed parties as well.  Macaig said “surprisingly adults find these teepees fun too so we are working on possible packages for bachelorette parties and “moms night in”.

How about that?  Can you imagine you and a few of your friends experiencing a sleep over in teepees?

Other ideas they are exploring are to “provide a teepee corner for weddings, providing activities for kids to keep them busy during the reception”, said Macaig.  That’s not all, how about other events away at home?

“We hope to be able to do fun events at the local places for kids such as the zoo and science museum! How fun would it be to sleep in a jungle themed teepee at the zoo?”, said Macaig. It doesn’t sound like a bad idea and something kids would eat up.

Don’t think the fun just ends with sleeping in a teepee at these sleepovers either.  There are add-on’s for an additional cost.

“There are easy DIY craft kits for the kids for an additional cost. We provide all the materials and DIY step by step instructions for pillowcase crafts, glam mirrors, and dream catchers. We have also teamed up with Girly-Girls of Scottsdale ( They provide and amazing add-on service where their glam squad comes to a “glamping” party, does amazing hair styling, basic makeup application, and a “mini-cure” for the each girl. Then the girls get to take home a goodie bag filled with eye shadow, lip gloss and the nail polish used for the “mini-cure”.
