Discover an ocean of fun with your fellow scouts!
Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts are invited to complete steps toward their badges with self-led activity sheets that are specifically designed for scouts. You can also purchase a special Scout Discovery Experience, which provides an exclusive educational opportunity and animal interaction.
Scouts, family, and friends, please join us for this self-guided event with optional activity sheets for scouts, along with parent guides, to work toward stewardship-related scout badges. Please check out our free downloadable activity sheet below. Participants are not required to stay for the entire event in order to join in on the fun.
A limited-edition 2014 Aquarium of the Pacific fun-badge will be available for sale in our gift shops. Scouting families will also receive 10% off gift shop purchases the day of the event. Please note: the Aquarium does not provide official scout patches.
Troop-leaders or parents are expected to facilitate the scouts learning experience and guide them through the steps for badge requirements. Some steps cannot be completed at this event and need to be completed at home.
