Girl Scout Day 2017 - Saturday, April 1st
Special Scout Programming 10 am – 3pm
Join us for this special sea turtle themed day for Girl Scouts! Activity stations designed to meet the Explore Sea Turtles patch requirements and the Daisy Rosie petal requirements will be set-up throughout the Aquarium. We will have staff and volunteers at the stations to facilitate the activities. Troop leaders or parents are also expected to facilitate the scout’s learning experience and guide them through the steps for petal/patch requirements. We will be providing “passport guides” to help scouts, leaders, and parents make sure they have completed all of the steps needed to complete the petal/patch requirements.
Reservations are not required. Pricing for this event includes both admission into the Aquarium and all of the patch activities. Admission for this event is $10 per scout/children ages 2+, $16 per adults, free for children under the age of 2.
Interested in adding on a Dolphin Discovery Sea Adventure that day too? We are also offering discounted, pre-sale tickets beginning February 1st. Normal rates apply for day of purchases.
Spend the night at the Aquarium! Meet our Animal Ambassadors, do scientific experiments, play nature-based games, and make crafts to take home. Reservations, deposit, and pre-payment are required. Visit the overnights page for more information.
