Pack 620's 4th Summer Activity! We'll be meeting at the Fort Worth Zoo, playing at the Safari Splash area for an hour or so, then you and your scout are free to continue enjoying the Safari Splash area or explore the zoo. The Fort Worth Zoo is doing some new expansions including their newly opened Elephant Springs area! Come out and have fun with us. The Zoo is no longer requiring reservations. Safari Splash opens at 9am and will stay open during the Fort Worth Zoo's open hours. Our Pack activity is from 10am-11am, but you and your family can enjoy the Zoo and Safari splash for as long as you want! If you cannot make it to the Zoo during our Pack Activity, but you come to the Zoo and the Safari Splash that day, just send our Committee Chair Becky Henderson a text (940-257-3645) or email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) letting her know that you came out and she will make sure your scout's attendance is marked.
