Armed with sleeping bags, pillows, and blankets, St. John the Baptist (Milpitas) Cub Scout Pack 270 got to sleep with the fish and other animals at the Monterey Bay Aquarium the weekend of February 26 and 27.
Admitted into the Aquarium after it closed to the general public for the day, the boys and their families had a chance to experience the Aquarium at a leisurely pace without the usual crowds. The weekend was filled with exciting and fun activities including Sea Games, Seahorse Magic, a Dive Encounter at the Kelp Forest Exhibit, and a Night Owl Movie.
Pack 270 set up their sleeping area around the Kelp Forest Exhibit. The next morning offered a fantastic view of sunrise over the ocean, wildlife watch, and breakfast.
