For the first time since the pandemic, the Aquarium of the Pacific is now bringing back its in-person Scout Days. Scouts, with their family and friends, are invited to the Aquarium on June 19, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at a special price with limited availability.
With many animals to discover and learn about, the Aquarium has self-led activity sheets, available online to download and print, for the Scouts to complete for badge requirements. Scout leaders or parents are expected to assist in the learning experience as some steps need to be completed at home.
In addition, Scout leaders and parents are advised to review the Scout council approved activities for each desired badge. Fun patches will be available in the Aquarium’s Pacific Collections gift store for $1 on Scout Day, and Scouts wearing their uniform can receive 20 percent off a total purchase.
Scouts and their guests can add on a 30-minute theater experience to meet the Aquarium animals and learn about them. This add-on experience requires its own tickets and reservations separate from Aquarium general admission.
During this program, the Aquarium’s animal husbandry staff will bring animals into the Ocean Theater and teach attendees about the animals’ adaptations that help these species protect themselves and find food in their natural environments. They will also learn about the importance of conservation and environmental stewardship.
The cost will include a discounted admission: $24.95 adult (ages 12+) (regular adult price $36.95) and $19.95 child (ages 3-11) (regular child price $26.95), and free for Aquarium members and children under age 3.
The 30-minute theater experience with Aquarium animals is a $10 add-on per person.
Reservations are required for both and can be made at aquariumofpacific.org/events/info/scouts/.
