A Night at the Aquarium

On March 6, the Cub Scout Pack 951 will spend a night with the fish at the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. We'll roll out your sleeping bags in front of the 306,000-gallon Living Shipwreck exhibit as sharks, eels and sea turtles swim nearby. We'll learn about the Aquarium’s magnificent animals and design their very own t-shirt to take home. Food, instruction, movies, and craft supplies are provided. In the morning, we will enjoy breakfast and tour the Aquarium before it opens to the public
