Pack 215 Cub Scouts camp at America’s Oldest Zoo


PARSIPPANY — Cubs Scouts from Pack 215 in Parsippany held their Annual Winter Indoor camping trip at America’s oldest zoo, the Philadelphia Zoo.

The overnight program hosted about 100 scouters and their families at the “Treehouse”, the Philadelphia Zoo’s magical, historical indoor playground which formerly housed the zoo’s giraffes. Pack 215 was by far the largest group with 30 attendees. The Scouts had an opportunity to interact with zoo keepers and staff, do a late-night hike, enjoy crafts and games, see a live animal show, and a guided tour the next day. They learned about the individual animals that call the zoo their home including some endangered species, as well as environmental and ecological topics. It all translated into a lot of fun and excitement!

Pack 215 of Parsippany serves boys from first through fifth grades, and delivers a provides a quality scouting program that is designed to provide your son and family with exciting experiences and memories that last a lifetime! Previous winter trips included camping at the Franklin Institute as well as the Battleship NJ. To learn more about Scouting and Pack 215, click here to visit their website or email:
