Saturday, May 25th – SLEEP IN THE DEEP

Your fast paced tour will take you where the aquarists and divers go and give you some idea of what it’s like to be part of the Aquarium team. We round off the night with time for a snack and meet with some of our critters up close as we see what it’s like in the Aquarium after the lights go down. Just when your eyes can’t stay open any longer, we’ll bed down alongside our largest exhibits where you can dream about all the magnificent creatures found in the Tennessee Aquarium.

LDS Church 3195 Trickum Road NE, Marietta, GA 8:30 AM – 2:30 PM (Registration as Pack closed)

June 22-23 FUN WITH A SON – A Cub Scout Adventure Weekend

Get hooked on scouting with our annual Fun with Son weekend. Fun with Son will be hosted on Saturday, June 22 - Sunday, June 23 at the Bert Adams Scout Reservation. Fun with Son is a special one-on-one weekend experience for any Cub Scout and his adult partner at our beautiful camp! Activities include hiking, fishing, learning to shoot BB guns, doing leatherwork, swimming, boating, shooting bows and arrows, and exploring nature. The fun culminates with a campfire at the historic amphitheater.

Hot dinner Saturday evening and breakfast Sunday morning will be served in the air-conditioned camp dining hall! You and your son get to camp in one of the camp tents, just like the Boy Scouts do each week. And, of course, Scouts get to keep all their crafts as well as a fantastic collector's participation patch.
