Our “Dinosaurs After Dark” Camp-In at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia is coming up in a few short months – January 13th to 14th!
8-year-old Cubmaster Mike swears it will be awesome.
Pack 48 at the Academy of Natural Sciences in 1990. Fanny packs optional in 2018.
A description of the program:
“Go on an ancient adventure during this special Night in the Museum! See Tiny Titans: Dinosaur Eggs and Babies
like you’ve never seen it before on a flashlight tour, show off your paleo-skills during hands-on games and activities, and jacket your own fossil to take home. Experience our eggs-cellent special exhibit before it leaves!”
We’ll also – pick our sleeping spot next to lions, tigers, or dinosaurs, where we’ll spend the night., go on a scavenger hunt, do a hands-on experiment, or inspect some not-so-creepy crawlies, explore every corner of the Academy’s famous exhibits, including the live butterfly garden and dinosaur bone dig, and enjoy a fascinating live animal show.
What do we need to do to be a part of it?
Who can go?: Due to the nature of this program, it is open only to registered Cub Scouts of Pack 48, and is not part of our usual family program. Every Scout must have a parent or guardian with them for the duration of the program. That parent/guardian can be responsible for up to three children (I don’t think anyone has more than two Scouts with us yet), so each individual Scout in a family does NOT need a separate guardian.
What does it cost?: This costs $65 per person. The is payable to the Pack by cash or check. All checks can be made out to “Troop 48” and can be passed on to your Den Leaders, to our Treasurer Heidi Iannuzzi, or to myself.
We will be collecting money for Scouts who are attending this program from now until Thursday, November 30th.
