We had A Night At The Museum Camp-In this past weekend at the Museum of Discovery and Science in Fort Lauderdale and it was fantastic. The turnout was great. We were greeted at the front door by the representative who quickly allowed us in to the museum promptly at 6:30. We were sent to a room to leave all of our bags and everyone was allowed to roam the museum until the official start at 7. The evening began with a pizza party and a introduction from the staff which explained the agenda. We, if you already didn’t know partnered with Pack 137 on this trip as they are the newest Pack in the Thunderbird District. Mike and the gang are a great group and will be continuing to assist them in developing their Pack.
As we continued to explore the museum the mad lab was opened at 8pm. I know what your thinking but we did not burn down the museum… We were treated to a science class (where I learned a few things) and then we all participated in some crazy experiments. After the mad lab, they opened the simulation rides as we continued to explore all what the museum had to offer. The museum has a mix of scientific, informational as well as natural exhibits which were all captivating. At 11pm, campers began looking for their sleeping areas as we were allowed to sleep virtually anywhere within the museum.
My children decided to sleep with all the critters including bats, scorpions and yes, even tarantulas; thanks to my kids for that!! Lights out happened at midnight.
Lights came on at 7am and were required to leave by 8am. I must say that this was a great adventure and I highly recommend this outing for any other Pack or group. Oh, and only the attendees know what came alive during the Night At The Museum. Enjoy the pics and as always, if you have some pictures to share, send them my way!
