We are going to Jungle Cat World for our second (and final) overnight trip of the year!
This will be in April so we haven’t done too much work for it yet. We are keeping it a surprise from the girls until February or so.
Jungle Cat World will hopefully be a great experience. It is a small zoo with big cats (surprise, surprise) as well as plenty of other animals. It is only about 30 minutes from home and was a cheap $50.00 per person. You can’t really beat that price!
What is included?
Indoor, dormitory-style sleeping quarters
Supper the night we arrive
Private, after-hours tour of the zoo
Watching the animals’ evening feeding
Bonfire (we will provide s’mores for the girls)
Classroom lesson on conservation and endangered species
What’s NOT included?
Transportation (parents to arrange)
* Breakfast the next morning (guiders to provide)
We do have access to a full kitchen to prepare and serve breakfast to the girls.
Our group is able to stay at the zoo for the entire next day without paying another admission. We are going to have the girls picked up at 1:00 so that we don’t also have to organize and provide lunch. We will definitely let parents know ahead of time though, that if they want to bring their other children and spend the day, their Brownie won’t have to pay again.
For this trip, we prepared these forms: SG.1, SG.2, H.2. We already have IR.1 and H.1 for each girl. These forms are available on the GGC website, but you will need to login to view them.
We also prepared a Kit List for each family to know what to pack. Our trip is in early April, and we have to provide the forms in February so we basically told them to pack everything with a little “* weather dependent” note beside half of the items. Depending on the year, it could still be snowing or 20C!
I will post the Kit List in a separate post later today.
Pro Tip: After you print all the sheets and staple them together for each girl, write her name on the top of each packet. Then you know exactly who hasn’t received theirs yet when it is still sitting with your guiding things!
The badges we expect to earn this visit are:
- Saving Plants and Animals
- Cookout (for those who missed that meeting)
- Help our planet
