“Spent the night at Eco Adventures last night on a Cub Scout sleep over working on the boys Wildlife Conservation requirements and had an awesome time!!..The boys loved it!!..Dr. Brady Barr(National Geographic), his wife, Mei Len, Anne & support staff taught the boys about natural resources, camouflage, animal tracks, endangered species, habitats and our impact on them!!..The animal interactions were amazing…hissing cockroaches, tarantulas, scorpions, chameleons, alligators, crocs and Gigantor, the 23ft long reticulated python!!..they played games, made and painted casts of fossils, claws and shark teeth, had popcorn, late night movie on the BIG screen, had breakfast together and our souvenir photos holding a snake or alligator and then sadly enough had to say goodbye…If you are looking for a cool Scout sleep over or School trip idea, call Mei Len at Eco Advetures!!.. They are an awesome establishment to work with!!..Thank you for everything!!..and see you again soon!!”
 By Marc Bass  Cub Scout Leader troop 209
I just wanted to let you all know that my girl scout troop had a great time on Saturday morning.  Aimee was absolutely fantastic with the girls.  I imagine you will be seeing lots of my scouts again for other activities that you sponsor too.  Thanks again and I’ll be back in another year for my younger daughters troop.”
